Gillham On Playing All Five
"There is a universalism to his music and an honesty that speaks directly. To me, Beethoven's music is an agent for good in this world; it is incredibly powerful without being explicitly political. And in the case of the concertos, the soloist is the personification of the individual, who toils, struggles, celebrates and loves deeply." Read more at adelaidereview.com.au
In The Racing Track
"Competitions are for horses, not artists," said Béla Bartok. Esteemed Irish pianist and educator John O'Conor believes that they are "a necessary evil" - a way for young musicians to get noticed in today's busy music scene. Read more at limelightmagazine.com.au

The Piano Key Missing

Great Composers Demand Change
"With piano concertos, we know beforehand what we are going to get," she said. "But with solo works, it's so bloody difficult. The great composers always change. And as you change, they change. Especially with the Schubert sonatas, I discovered that I truly have changed." Read more at

Joanna Goodale:

88 Squared:
Falling Pieces

Daniel Ott's Falling Pieces is an intriguingly modern take on an instrumental setup that nearly got lost in the surges of modern music production. The piano duo who performs the works on the album, Karen and Jeffrey Savage of 88squared, are close friends of Ott who also commissioned the second work on the album, Fantasy on a Falling Line.
