Description
Information
In this eloquent, intimate exploration of the delights and demands of the piano, world-renowned concert pianist and music writer Charles Rosen draws on a lifetime's wisdom to consider every aspect of the instrument: from what makes a beautiful sound to suffering from stage fright, from the physical challenges of playing to tales of great musicians, including Vladimir Horowitz's recording tricks, Rachmaninov s hands and why Artur Rubenstein applied hairspray to the keys.
Gracefully blending anecdote, history, expertise and memoir, 'Piano Notes' will enchant anyone with a passion for music.
