French Pianism: A Historical Perspective

by

French Pianism: A Historical Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The undisputed preeminence of Paris as a center of the piano world dates from the early 19th century, and the rigorous professors of the Paris Conservatoire transmitted the characteristic French piano style faithfully to each new generation for some 150 years. First published to critical acclaim in 1992, this landmark study, now considerably expanded and revised, surveys the historical development, performance practices and pedagogical philosophies of this vital school. HARDCOVER.

Book News Annotation:

New edition of a survey in which Timbrell (piano, Howard University) presents the development, performance practices, and pedagogical philosophies of the French school of piano playing from its conception to the present forward-looking changes in the Conservatoire and the melding of the old French school with styles of other nations. In addition to recounting the history of piano making and the organizational and pedagogical structure of the French Conservatoire, he draws upon about 70 interviews with notable French-trained pianists as well his own lessons with famous teachers in order to illuminate teaching styles, curricula, and the imparting of the distinct French style on talented musicians of highly individual personalities and sensibilities. Contains many b&w photographs.
