Requirements: .PDF reader, 3.6 Mb
Overview: This volume collects the engaging and richly informative writings of pianist Moriz Rosenthal (1862-1946). A student of Franz Liszt and of Chopin’s pupil Karl Mikuli, and colleague and friend of Brahms and Johann Strauss II, Rosenthal is best remembered as one of the great performers of late-Romantic piano music and as an editor and teacher. Rosenthal’s words offer a glimpse at this great age of piano performance and music history, which linked the 19th century with the modern era. World-renowned musicologist and pianist Charles Rosen-perhaps Rosenthal’s most acclaimed student-has written the preface.
