This workshop explains the Chopin pianistic tradition, including fingerings, technical movements, and interpretations (whether Chopin did or did not approve). The main connection to be explored is the connection between Etudes Op. 10 and Op. 25 as repertoire pieces included in both evaluations and concerts. It is recommended that workshop participants use the National Edition of the Chopin Etudes (J. Ekier) and consult at least two contrasting recordings of the complete cycle of Chopin Etudes (M. Lisak, N. Lugansky, Z. Raubo/T. Shebanova, A. Cortot, V. Lisitsa, J. Lisiecki, B. Berezovsky) including historical pianos and modern pianos.
All Branch meetings and programs are scheduled but NOT confirmed at this time. We will be continuing
to update members via email as each date nears.
General meetings are usually held at Salvation Army (Richmond Community Church), 8280 Gilbert Road, Richmond, 9:30 AM. (map)
