Dear friends and musicians,
together with my colleague Derek Remeš, I recently published an essay collection Angewandtes Klavierspiel: Historische und Zeitgenössische Perspektiven / Applied Piano: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives (Olms): https://www.olms.de/search/Detail.aspx?pr=2009850
It includes many intriguing articles by international authors, and also an article of mine about “Pierre-Joseph-Guillaume Zimmerman’s Encyclopédie du Pianiste Compositeur.” I am currently working on a new translated edition (English and German) of this fantastic treatise, which gives rare and invaluable insights into the education of professional pianist composers and improvisers of the 19th century. I’ll keep you posted about the project. The essay collection is available in book stores and online.
Enjoy the read!
