Description

This title examines the teaching of Professor Hautzig, which continues the Romantic piano tradition of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Europe, and stresses individuality allied with faithfulness to the score. Since his retirement as a professor of piano at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, Hautzig has continued to concertize and give master classes around the world. Elements of his teaching studies include pedaling, phrasing, tone color, grouping, practice techniques, techniques for playing octaves and chords, and fingering choices. This work also summarizes Hautzig's practical pedagogical advice for effective teaching. The study will appeal to pianists at the intermediate level and beyond, college and conservatory piano majors, and teachers of piano at all levels.
