Ear-opening Explorations: Sabine Liebner plays Stockhausen’s Solo Piano Music
Sabine Liebner’s unfaltering decision to only play music to which she feels an inner affinity has led to her being primarily active as an interpreter of new music. She has premiered many works by contemporary composers and made important contributions performing and recording the music of 20th century composers like John Cage, Morton Feldman and Galina Ustvolskaya. For Liebner, music making is the solitary exploration of unknown terrain. She tries to listen to a score with no preconceptions, to discover its innate musical language. The results are often intriguing, and can sometimes even prove addictive, as in her recording of Stockhausen’s Klavierstücke I-XI. Read more...

Quality vs. Pricing in China
"Most families don’t care much about the brand and most of the pianos they buy come from small Chinese factories," he said. "The most popular ones are priced between 20,000 and 30,000 yuan (US$3,000 to US$4,400), with some costing just a little over 10,000 yuan, which is much cheaper than comparable European or American brands."

Fleisher's On-stage Celebration
"To celebrate his milestone birthday, Fleisher appeared with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at a near-sold-out concert at Strathmore on Saturday night.

Jazz Piano in Japan

Book: More Debussy
"As Stephen Walsh shows in Debussy: A Painter in Sound - published in 2018, 100 years after the composer's death - Debussy craved this simplicity and directness, but he had trouble finding it in his own musical milieu. He admired older French music - its "clarity of expression, that precision and compactness of form" - but felt it had been corrupted by German influences." Read more at theatlantic.com
