The A-List

Lecture no. 24 from the course: The 23 Greatest Solo Piano Works

The A-List

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 52 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

The course concludes with a lighthearted look at another side of the piano literature: works written by the great composers for amateur pianists. Survey nine iconic piano pieces from Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Rubinstein, Dvorak, and Debussy; the stories behind their writing; and the often amusing ways in which these works have taken root in our culture. Contemplate the scope of the piano repertoire, a literature that is, as Professor Greenberg says, “the envy of every other instrument.”
