Giving Disadvantaged Kids a Musical Advantage
Lang Lang is controversial when he's on the bench with his hands on the keyboard. He's someone audiences either love or love to hate. When it comes to reaching out to young people around the world through music, however, he has no peer. Read more at dnainfo.com
High Praise Indeed
When a giant of the music world like Itzhak Perlman tells you that you play Bach as if you were born to it, that's among the highest compliments a musician can receive. Martha Argerich received such praise from Perlman and was equally effusive in lauding his abilities. Working together, they make a formidable team at the forefront of the world of classical music recordings. Read more at thestrad.com

Visual Media as Audio Media
Nearly 60 years ago, John Cage experimented with the piano by sticking things into it. In the 21st century, Daniel Watkins experiments further by taking computerized data from compiled photographs, morphing it into audio data, and creating pieces for piano using a notation program. After that, he transfers what he's created onto cassette instead of digitizing it, which he maintains makes his music into sculpture. Read more at vice.com
Master and Pupil
Haydn taught Beethoven and promptly tossed him from his studio because of his recalcitrant attitude. Before he went deaf, Beethoven taught Czerny. Finally, Czerny taught Liszt. Liszt, therefore, 'studied with Beethoven', so to speak. Pianists today have tracing their teachers' pasts to see with whom they 'studied'.
