Quick Overview

Isidore Philipp takes the viewpoint of all noted thinkers on the subject of piano playing: there can be no satisfying interpretation of the great works until the performer is so fully a master of technique that his mind can freely assert itself in tone production and in the musical rendering of the phrase, the sentence, and the entire piece. The exercises found in this book will ensure that the student acquires command over instantaneous muscular contraction and relaxation, and a consequent ease and endurance which enable him in a comparatively short time to play long and brilliant passages effectively, without stiffness or fatigue.
