Piano Starts Here!

Lecture no. 1 from the course: The 23 Greatest Solo Piano Works

Piano Starts Here!

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 49 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

Begin by reflecting on the life of the concert pianist and the extraordinary rigors and demands of this unique profession within the music world. Then trace the history of the harpsichord, the piano’s predecessor, and how the piano, capable of a huge sonic range, evolved from its beginnings in 1700 into the modern concert instrument. Consider the range of composers included in this course and the criteria for the selection of the masterworks you’ll study.
