One Man's Journey
His stern mother once slammed the piano lid down to keep him away from the piano. He never realized his musical ambition. Instead, Ken Unsworth turned to art to express himself. Read more at smh.com.au
Mixed-Media Tchaikovsky
Alexandra Dariescu is about to depart on an extensive tour of Europe. She is going to be playing a piano rendition of "The Nutcracker", which is not, in and of itself, unusual. Her performance is unusual, however, because it includes not only a single dancer but also animated forms. The performance uses more than 35,000 hand-drawn animation images and is designed not to overshadow the piano. Read more at rhinegold.co.uk

It does, however, quell her anxiety about her anxiety, which makes all the difference. Read more at wxxinews.org

Lang Lang isn't just a wizard of technique, a calmed-down performer humbled by injury, or just a plain, old out-of-this-world virtuoso at the piano. He's also quite a looker, and he holds his own in the world of fashion. Read more at straitstimes.com
Seeing Sound
Joyce Yang has the gift of synesthesia. She sees colors when she hears music. The visual images are striking, such as seeing royal velvet red when she hears the key of E-flat Major. Three high-school students, inspired by Ms. Yang, produced their own project based on synesthesia. Read more at ohio.com
Is it the Player, or Is it the Composer?
Asiya Korepanova maintains that many of the world's greatest performers did things that composers never intended. Thereafter, their interpretations became "the standard" while what the composers wanted was forgotten. She strives to remain as true to the original intent of the composers as much as possible.
