Classical Conversations Series
Classical Conversations is an interview series filmed between 2013 – 2016. This series contains forty interviews with eminent classical pianists and pedagogues, each one featured on Melanie’s YouTube channel. Melanie, who curated, filmed, and edited this series, chats informally on camera to each artist about their training, musical education, and career. She tends to ask similar questions and the answers are diverse; it’s fascinating how each artist’s musical education has shaped and influenced their career.
