9780671638375: The Great Pianists: From Mozart to the Present

From Mozart’s fabulous legato that “flowed like oil” to Beethoven’s oceanlike surge, from Clara Schumann’s touch “sharp as a pencil sketch” to Rubinstein’s volcanic and sensual playing, The Great Pianists brings to life the brilliant, stylish, and sometimes eccentric personalities, methods, and technical peculiarities of history’s greatest pianists.

Pulitzer Prize–winning critic and author Harold C. Schonberg presents vivid accounts of the artists’ performances, styles, and even their personal lives and quirky characteristics— such as Mozart’s intense competition with Clementi, Lizst’s magnetic effect on women (when he played, ladies flung their jewels on stage), and Gottschalk’s persistent nailbiting, which left the keys covered with blood.

Including profiles of Horowitz and Van Cliburn, among others, and chapters detailing the playing and careers of such modern pianists as de Larrocha, Ashkenazy, Gilels, Gould, Brendel, Bolet, Gutierrez, and Watts, The Great Pianists is a comprehensive and fascinating look at legendary performers past and present.

Descripción Simon & Schuster, Fireside Books, New York, 1987. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 2nd Edition, Revised, Expanded & Updated. Remarkably, at almost 18-years since it was printed & bound, this 1st edition, 1st printing paper-bound copy (1987) remains in impeccable new condition w/ an attractive new cover on durable laminated stock w/ sharp new edges & corners, immaculate smooth-cut text-block exterior, strong new uncreased binding, pristine interior handsomely printed on excellent unblemished paper * 6.12" x 9.18" x 1.36", 0.74 kg, 525 pp. * Preface (13), Index (501) * From Mozart's fabulous legato that "flowed like oil" to Beethoven's ocean-like surge to Chopin's ear-splitting dissonances, from Clara Schumann's touch "sharp as a pencil sketch" to Rubinstein's volcanic & sensual playing to Rachmaninoff's exquisitely-shaped phrases, 'The Great Pianists' brings to life the brilliant, stylish & sometimes eccentric personalities, methods & technical peculiarities of history's greatest pianists, from Mozart to the modern-day masters. Pulitzer Prize-winning critic & author Harold C. Shonberg presents a vivid account of each artist's performances, styles & even their personal lives & quirky characteristics: Mozart's intense competition w/ Clementi; the dandy-ism of Chopin; Liszt's magnetic affect on women (when he played, women flung their jewels on stage); Gottschalk's persistent nail-biting, which left the keys covered w/ blood; & Landowska's dramatic entrances, his eyes cast to the heavens, in "communion" w/ Bach. This new edition has been completely revised & updated to include expanded material on Horowitz, Cliburn & others, & 4 new chapters detailing the plaything 7 careers of such modern pianists as de Larrocha, Ashkenazy, Gilels, Gould, Brendel, Bolet, Gutierrez, Watts & many others. * Harold C. Schonberg was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 1971. He joined The New York Times in 1950 as a music critic, was named senior music critic in 1960 & continued in that post until he became cultural correspondent in 1980. Schonberg is the author of 12 books, including 'The Great Conductors', 'The Lives of the Great Composers' & 'The Glorious Ones'. * "A lively & amusing account of the personalities, methods, technical peculiarities & musical genealogies of those who contributed to the art of piano playing." - The New Yorker * "Harold Schonberg's 'The Great Pianists' is the most engrossing of all books on the subject in our experience. The pages read almost as though he had come direct from a concert by Cramer or Moscheles, w/ the experience still fresh in his mind, & described the playing accurately, colorfully, thoroughly." - Robert Taylor, Boston Sunday Herald * 'The Great Pianists is an epic work which traverses the development of piano performance since its inception 200 years ago. It forms not only a survey of the field, long overdue, but the way in which it is accomplished serves to honor as well as to illuminate the great development of performance as art . . ." - Rosalyn Tureck, London Sunday Times.
