Hungarian Piano Tradition

see The Hungarian piano school, whose origins can be traced back to Franz Liszt, produced many of the greatest pianists of the last century. The tradition in fact goes back to Beethoven, since Liszt was taught by Carl Czerny, who was pupil of Beethoven.

follow site At the core of the tradition is the rich singing tone, which also traces back to Chopin and the Italian bel canto. No less important trait is the weight based piano technique, i.e. the sensibilisation and stabilisation of the finger joints, which enables the use of the free falling weight of the arm.

buy flagyl er The aim of this masterclass is to preserve and spread the tradition of the Hungarian piano school. It introduces a natural approach to piano playing, which serves the realisation of musical imagination.

New as well as traditional exercises and examples of the main elements of piano technique, scales, arpeggios, double notes, chords, jumps, thrills, pedal, etc. are represented with proposals for the solution of technical problems.

    I highly recommend László Gyimesi’s video lectures both for music teachers and their pupils. These short bits unveil a lot of the secrets of the pianistic tradition initiated by Franz Liszt. As one of the successors of the Lisztian heritage Mr. Gyimesi succeeds to take hold of the essence when he speaks about certain rules, problems or phenomena. Last but not least his illustrative abilities provide great help to those who prefer to obtain information directly from the musical substance beyond the verbal sphere.

    With his masterclass on piano playing, László Gyimesi helps to preserve the great romantic tradition of piano playing. A relaxed piano technique without unnecessary tensions allows us to express our thoughts and feelings almost directly. Every pianist can come closer to this ideal. This masterclass is extremely valuable in that respect – it can unleash great potential in every pianist.
