While a master class with a legendary performer is a dream for any student, we are treated here to the next best thing: a collection of chats with the world's greatest pianists. Here, in one remarkable volume, are the thoughts, musical insights, and invaluable practical advice from a host of world-class musicians, recorded in their own words, at the height of their careers, in separate interviews. Ignacy Paderewski talks about the correct motion of fingers and forearm in his new "Méthode"; Josef Hofmann talks about the role of inspiration in piano playing; Leopold Godowsky discusses the laws governing technique; and Walter Gieseking shares his thoughts on the necessity of relaxation. Filled with insights for pianists on all levels, this book provides a unique opportunity to learn simple but unforgettable lessons from the great masters. Introduction by Dr. Jeffrey Johnson.

Dover Original compilation drawn from the 2-volume work originally published in 1915 and 1917 by Frederick A. Stokes Co., New York.
