Inspired by Mozart’s Piano
The Harvard professor Robert Levin is considered to be one of the most important Mozart researchers of our time. Now he has recorded Mozart’s piano sonatas on the composer’s own instrument. Mario-Felix Vogt from the German/Dutch magazine PIANIST spoke with him about ornamentation, knee pedals and the influence of C.P.E. Bach. Read more >>

Sight reading: Post-Harris Recommendations
on: March 05, 2021, 08:28:27 PM
Hi Everyone,
I'm currently working on my sight reading and have been practicing using the Harris sight reading series (which I really enjoyed and highly recommend if anyone's looking for beginner/intermediate resources).
As I'll be done the series next week, I was wondering if anyone knew any other sight reading books I could turn to for late intermediate/advanced levels. Or is it time for me to jump in and just start sight reading real pieces?

Sight read real repertoire!  Not only may you find a piece/composer that you really like but had never thought of, you will be exposed to a wide variety of styles.  A good place to look for lists are the exam syllabi.  You also might look at anthologies such as ‘classics  to Modern’  or other anthologies that span periods.  Try out some rags. Try musicals.   Just explore!
