Piano: Performance and Pedagogy

Post by Dennis » Mon Jun 05, 2017 2:25 pm

There is a site I follow on Facebook -- Piano: Performance and Pedagogy. There are beautiful perfomances posted there quite often. It is a good site that introduces us to very good pianists that may not be well know. This morning someone posted Pietro de Maria playing a tribute to Chopin at the Miami International Piano Series in 2014.

This is the type of performance where I like to plug my laptop into my flat screen TV and settle down for the evening with a nice pot of tea. It is the next best thing to being at a nice intimate concert.

Dear Dennis,

Very interesting performance!
He is a true lyricist. I especially like his slow parts. He really takes courage to express his artistic ideas and also those that occur spontaneously.
His performance really differs from how the piece is usually played. He is quite free with rhythms and articulation, dynamics etc.
So very interesting performance!

To see the uniqueness and the good in what we look at is an art itself :)

Take care!
