Well-Rounded Winston
He usually wears a checkered shirt and socks without shoes when he performs, but George Winston is more than a slightly idiosyncratic, New Age pianist. He plays guitar and and harmonica equally well. Read more at rutlandherald.com
Visual Yes but Impressionist?
"The term 'Impressionism' is a crude label to apply to the music of Debussy, whose compositions, while often inspired by visual motifs, defy definition as they strive to capture the essence of reality rather than merely a vague sense of mood. Paul Roberts describes how Debussy used his ears and eyes to provoke a complex, fresh and imaginative response to the world through the medium of sound." Read more at rhinegold.co.uk
More Mold Breaking From Dublin
Not all piano competitions are created equal. Most of them, however, require their competitors to conform, at least slightly, to the "conventions of the day". Idiosyncrasies are discouraged. In Dublin, however, the eponymous International Piano Competition actively encourages its participants to be wholly themselves and focuses on programme building and the totality of the competitors' musicianship.

Hauschka to Sony
Volker Bertelmann, known as Hauschka, has "taken his talents" to Sony. The prepared pianist is considered both innovative and grounded, which is a terrifically marketable combination, according to Sony. Read more at rhinegold.co.uk
She Didn't Fit the Mold
Eileen Joyce didn't do things the "right" way, according to the "establishment." She wore exotic gowns to perform. She used lighting to highlight her beauty on stage. She also played the pants off of many of her male contemporaries, so they ostracized her, ostensibly because of her nontraditional methods. More likely, they were jealous of her talent.

Leeds Goes Global
"After this month’s rounds in Berlin, Singapore and New York, the competition will return to Leeds in September. This is a much less punishing experience: In the past, 80 pianists flew into Leeds from across the world and played through the rounds and finals relentlessly, under pressure, for as long as three weeks."

No Pleasing Some People
Many things contribute to a piano's sound. Aside from its tuning, the piano's age, condition, and the manner in which it has been both played and kept up all have an effect on how it sounds. Some people, after having had a perfect tuning completed, are still dissatisfied with their pianos' sounds. Most of the time, this has nothing to do with the tuning and everything to do with everything else. Read more at pianodao.com
Conquering Handicaps
Beethoven overcame his deafness and composed some of the greatest music ever written. Nobuyuki Tsujii is blind, but he doesn't let that stop him being a terrific pianist. Instead of reading Braille music, the Japanese pianist listens over and over again to recordings to memorize the notes. Then, he adds his own interpretation. Read more at borneobulletin.com.bn
