It should be, that is what I wrote.

I guess Schmitz' book on the piano music of Debussy, The Piano Works of Claude Debussy, should be on the list.

Perhaps this is as good as any thread to ask this question...

Has anyone seen this book: "Anna Nikolaevna Esipova:", by Nikolai Bertenson, pub. 1960, Leningrad.

It may not have been translated from the original Russian, although I would have it translated. Because she was the student and wife of Leschetizky, and a formidable pianist-teacher in her own right, I am very interested in acquiring this book.

Regards,

JB

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

That's a fine and thorough book in my opinion. I wonder though, how close was Schmitz actually to Debussy? It appears he cannot have been awfully old when Debussy died? I'm asking because the edition that I have (Dover press) states that he was a good friend of Debussy, so...In any case, a good read for sure.

Regarding his other book the capture of inspiration, I'm having troubles finding info/excerpts. Is it out of print or something? Hard to find info online.

And I guess nobody knows whether anyone is intending to translate Samuil Feinberg's "Pianism as art"? Segments have been translated so far. Every pianist I know that understands russian says it is undoubtedly one of the most valuable books on piano playing.

I had a good friend who studied with Schmitz. He said that Schmitz would accompany Mary Garden when she sang for Debussy. I think he studied the piano works with Debussy.

Schmitz worked to get Jewish musicians out of France ahead of the Nazis. That is how Darius Milhaud came to Mills College and Pierre Monteux came to the San Francisco Symphony. He is sadly neglected these days, but he was a great humanitarian.

The Capture of Inspiration is long out of print, as are the accompanying editions of music. I have the book and the Chopin and Thompson Etudes which he edited. I guess they would be easier to find around here, since he ended up in San Francisco.

I was told that the CHopin etudes have a COMPLETELY unique set of fingerings unlike all other editions. I believe someone told me that the left hand opening stuff in the Revolutionary etude alters between two fingers??? (presumably for clearer accents...?)

Not that I am aware of. The opening of the Revolutionary is fingered the same in all three editions that I have: Schmitz, Paderewski and Friedheim.

Wonderful book on the Chopin piano concertos (also covers the Allegro de Concert) - highly recommended:

John Rink - Chopin: The Piano Concertos
http://www.cambridge.org/us/academic/subjects/music/nineteenth-century-music/chopin-piano-concertos

Here is a comprehensive summary/review of the book:

Excellent. Thank you.

I'd just like to add, please add your selections to the master list by clicking on quick quote. That way, maintaining the list becomes a group effort.
