Skills for Pianists
is the kind of book every accompanist yearns for. Not only is
the writing a model of clarity, but the numerous useful musical
examples and the manner in which they are discussed and integrated
into text, focus on the most vital and frequently encountered
problem areas in this sometimes unappreciated profession. The
useful quality and artistic merits of this book cannot be overemphasized.
Areas such as Stylistic Insights; Skills for Specific Historical
Periods; Reaching Agreement Democratically; Rehearsing On Stage,
and others, help clarify many potentially difficult situations.
a practicing accompanist for forty years, I immediately related
to every chapter and point. My suggestion to all pianists: rush
out an get this book immediately! You will find yourself referring
to it time and time again.
