The World Piano Bible
While working in a piano factory in Leipzig, East Germany, Jens Witter started cataloging pianos, inadvertently beginning what would eventually become his doctoral dissertation. The data archive grew and comprised 10 000 index cards and eventually became a massive Bible of Pianos containing some 40 000 names. Read more...
The Hidden Piano Treasure of Jean Sibelius
Strangely enough, it would be quite easy to attend piano recitals for years and never hear a note of Sibelius. Now Norwegian pianist Leif-Ove Andsnes makes an adventurous raid into Sibelius’ native Finland and want us to change that. It is not surprising that his playing is immaculately detailed and sympathetic Read more...

Mozart Can Tell the Difference
For the first time in the history of The Cliburn Competition, semifinalists were required to perform a Mozart concerto. This was not only based on the fact that the Cliburn Foundation’s CEO Jacques Marquis is a classical concerto fan, but rather from the aim of judging how competitors show musical maturity and the delicate world of the Austrian master.

Teaching from an Eclectic Viewpoint
Many pianists are fantastic at one genre. Some might even dabble in other genres. A select few, however, are good at everything Tony Caramia is such a performer. He is as at home playing 'Pineapple Rag' as he is with a Brahms sonata or a run through the chords of 'Sweet Loraine', the ghosts of Joplin, Brahms, and Tatum nodding approvingly in the background.

A Wedding of Contemporary Art and Music
Kenneth Fuchs draws inspiration for his love of modern music from the paintings of Helen Frankenthaler. Frankenthaler was an abstract expresssionist who thinned her paint until it soaked into the fabric of the canvas instead of just clinging to it. Fuchs takes the same approach in his compositions, with many themes underlying the 'face' of the piece. Read more at huffingtonpost.com
You Will Never Know ... Or Will You?
Jonathan Biss has a special place in his heart for Schumann because the music speaks directly to him through the filter of his own life's experiences. Beethoven, on the other hand, has such a forceful personality that the relationship can never be closer than partner. Biss is intimately acquainted with both, but at the corner of his consciousness is a nagging doubt that he will never uncover all of what can truly be known of either. Read more at latimes.com
Bruch the Fighter
Max Bruch is known for a couple of pieces. Many of his others are unknown, unappreciated, or both. The double concerto for two pianos begins with thunderous chords and mournful woodwinds. The work was mercilessly reworked by two sisters who couldn't play the original, Bruch having naively given them sole performance rights. The original is nearly pugilistic in its aggressiveness, and Pavel Kolesnikov and Samson Tsoy give it a proper performance. Read more at theguardian.com
Lang Lang Bolsters Piano Education in Philadelphia
He may have his detractors because of his onstage antics, but Lang Lang is certainly at the forefront in the world of music education. He has personally given $1 million to a collective of six schools in Philadelphia to give them pianos and maintain them for three years. An alumnus of the Curtis Institute of Music, Lang Lang feels a kinship with the city. It's not just because of cheesesteaks either! Read more at philly.com
Making a Warhorse Less Warlike and Less 'Horsey'
Nicholas Angelich believes in sincerity. Without it, he maintains, the music is listless and without conviction. When it comes to pieces like Rachmaninoff's second piano concerto, which has been played so many times that it's instantly recongizable, the performer must make it unique to him or her through expression, style, and personality. He or she must imbue it with his or her spirit and not just parrot what others have done. Read more at thenational.ae
Lots of Practice
Even if you're a professional musician, in the hustle and bustle of life in the 21st century, it's hard to find practice time as an adult. As a child, it's a little easier. That does not, however, diminish the success of one Matthew deGoey, who has practiced for 1,000 days in a row. Read more at dcourier.com
The 9-Foot Grand x Two
It's 18 feet long. Because of that, it hardly fits on most stages. When it is available, however, it never ceases to surprise. While many people would assume it would handle the grandeur of the biggest piano works, it is its suitability to the delicate, pianissimo sections that is most remarkable.
