Mozart Can Tell the Difference
For the first time in the history of The Cliburn Competition, semifinalists were required to perform a Mozart concerto.

What Does a Pianist See?
In this video, eye-tracking glasses are used to show exactly where the gaze of a pianist is directed while playing. A professional concert pianist and his student take turns using the glasses, revealing interesting facts about how experience makes a great difference in terms of effective eye movement, both when playing from memory and from a piano score.

Belated London Premiere for Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel on International Women’s Day
As part of its special day of programming for International Women’s Day, BBC Radio 3 broadcasted a live performance of the Easter Sonata, a major piano work which until recently had been attributed to Felix Mendelssohn, but is now proved to be the work of his sister Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel.

Barenboim on Chopin’s Ballade no. 1
Chopin inspires musicians to greater artistry and, as Barenboim says in this video, makes them want to sound as if the music is simply emanating from them as light from a candle. In this ballade, Chopin also takes us on a leisurely stroll through his own private musical world. Read more...
Immersed in Mozart – Roberto Prosseda on Recording the Early Sonatas
The Italian pianist Roberto Prosseda has previously recorded Mendelssohn’s complete piano works. Now he is embarking on a new, slightly less encyclopedic but equally ambitious project, that of recording Mozart’s complete sonatas. Read more...

Pianist Behind the Wheel
There's an old joke about the rocker and the jazzman. One plays three chords in front of 80,000 people; the other plays 80,000 chords in front of three people. Duke Jordan was a jazz pianist of unquestioned genius. He collaborated with Charlie Parker and Miles Davis 70 years ago and is well-known in the jazz world as one of the greats. To make ends meet, he once had to drive a taxi in New York. Read more at npr.org

Structure Versus Spontaneity
Joanna MacGregor appreciates the way composers put together their music. She marvels at the balanced phrases, well-aligned chords, and overall form. Still, she is even more impressed with the way the music of these great composers allows for 'on-the-fly' musical decisions akin to 'taking forks less traveled-by', which makes all the difference.

An Unparalleled Master Makes His Mark Again
Dinu Lipatti died more than 60 years ago at the age of 33. At the time, he was making music of a level higher than almost anyone else.

A Perpetual 'Staff Meeting'
Almost 1,000 years ago, there was no 'music to read'. There were just some markings on the parchment scribbled in above the words. Music teaching, even in what would now be known as professional choirs, was largely done by rote. Then, Guido of Arezzo happened along. He organized the first music notation that indicated both the pitch and duration of notes! Read more at wqxr.org
