A-Z of Pianists *d*


Add To Wish List + £19.99 - Item is discontinued.

The 'A-Z of Pianists' surveys the lives, careers and recordings of 300 pianists. Illustrious names from past and present, forgotten titans of the keyboard, unsung geniuses: all the great pianists who have made recordings are included, from Argerich to Zadora. Amazingly, the text touches three centuries, from the birth of Francis Plant?® in 1839 to the established artists of today; from the earliest, most primitive recording processes to contemporary, cutting-edge technology. The format is clear and simple to follow. The subjects are listed alphabetically, each one beginning with a summary of that pianist's career and most important recordings before going on to an extended biography and critical appraisal of his or her recorded legacy. In addition, four compact discs present the author's selection of seventy-five artists in new transfers by Ward Marston. This package will appeal to enthusiast and scholar alike as a readable, informed and fascinating work of reference.
