Lately, I've been enjoying reading many of the books recommended here at PW. Borrowing from Matt's idea of listing music played by PW members, I'd like to start a thread listing books related to pianos, piano music, pianists and piano composers. Please include the title, author's name and a very brief description of what it covers. To keep the list managable, please do not critique the book. We will assume you liked it if you add it to our list.

Here's mine so far:

Grand Obsession Knize (Perri's journey to find the perfect piano)

Inner Game of Music Green (Techniques for mastering nerves and tension)

Men, Women and Pianos Loesser (History of pianos)

My Life in Music Barenboim (Barenboim's experiences as a pianist and conductor. Interesting insights into the art of conducting.)

My Life with the Great Pianists Mohr (Personal reflections, caveat: heavy on religion).

My Many Years Rubinstein (Autobiography)
My Young Years Rubinstein (Autobiography)

Passionate Practice Elson (Evolving your attitude about playing, tension, nerves and performing.)

Piano Book Fine (Piano construction, purchasing, brands)

Piano Playing with Questions Answered Hofmann (Great pianist's advice).

Playing the Piano for Pleasure Cooke (1940's - advice on how to practice.)

Romance on Three Legs Hafner (Biography Glenn Gould)

Speaking of Pianists Chasins (Personal reflections on the great pianists of the early 20th century)

The Art of Piano Playing Neuhaus (Autobiographical and advice on technique)

The Perfect Wrong Note Westney (Advice on practice, nerves and performance. )

Under the Lid Brady (Technician's advice on piano maintenance with fascinating anecdotes about pianists and concert prep.)

very interesting idea, Deborah (I can't really call you by your handle, gooddog!). May I suggest you format the listing a tiny bit (eg a comma or semi-colon) to separate the title and author for ease of reading

Well, it's not about piano playing per se, but this book influenced my own philosophy about making music. The author Michelle Cassou takes a process over product approach to painting. An approach I now apply to creating at the piano.

Highly recommended if you're looking for an intuitive approach to creating ... in any art.

Sorry, but I can't list over 100 books. Maybe when I get finished with Walker's 3 volume Liszt bio. I'm near the end of Volume II.

IMO, I'd add in the full author's name. This might make it easier for people to find the books.

Note by Note; Tunstall, Tricia; (Memoirs of a piano teacher.)

Piano Notes; Rosen, Charles; (Notes from a concert pianist.)

Dance and the Music of J. S. Bach; Little, Meredith & Natalie Jenne; (Study of J. S. Bach's dance music.)

The Lives of the Great Composers; Schonberg, Harold; (Do I really need to add a description to this one?)

The Lives and Times of the Great Composers; Steen, Michael;

Beethoven; Solomon, Maynard; (Biography of Beethoven.)

Mozart: A Life; Solomon, Maynard; (Biography of Mozart.)

Johann Sebastian Bach: The Learned Musician; Wolff, Christoph; (Biography of Bach.)

Ornamentation : A Question & Answer Manual; Lloyd-Watts, Valery & Carole L. Bigler; (A very practical study of how to perform ornamentation for intermediate pianists.)

I have other books that are on my to read list, but I'm not sure if we want to add these right now.

If you want a good laugh (and an inside look at playing the hotel/wedding/party circuit), you have to read Piano Girl by Robin Meloy Goldsby (she's in our Who's Who forum).

I took out all the books on piano playing from my university library at the beginning of the summer. Of those books, I'll recommend two:

Notes from the Pianist's Bench; Boris Berman (some technique, how to interpret music, playing with emotion, performing)

Piano Technique; Karl Leimer & Walter Gieseking (piano technique, memorizing)


Professional pianist and piano teacher.

I'm reading a pretty good one just now: The Rest is Noise; Listening to the Twentieth Century. Alex Ross, Picador pub. (FSG), 2007, paper, 695 pages.

Ross worked as music critic for The New Yorker. This is a historical and musical overview of twentieth century composers, music, and the music scene. It was pretty harrowing century, when you think about it: WWI, WWII, Germany in the Weimar Republic and on into Hitler, Russia before the revolution and on into Stalin. Then again, there was Paris in the twenties, Hollywood in the thirties and forties, New York in the fifties and sixties. It is a pretty well-informed and unflinching look at a time it seems many music history writers would as soon skip over.

Ross is a pretty smart guy, and the text is dense with ideas and information, yet the story is readable and even gripping. At 695 pp., including an index, it is a lot of book for eighteen bucks.

I'm quite a British history freak, so this takes up a fair amount of time, but here are a few piano books I've read over the past several years:

Life and Liszt; Friedheim (intoxicated memoir)

I Really Should Be Practicing; Gary Graffman (Autobiography)

Cambridge Companion to Liszt; Edited Kenneth Hamilton

Rachmaninoff; Max Harrison

Alkan: The Music; Ronald Smith

The Pianist's Problems; William S.Newman

(Yet a bit embarrassed to admit that most of my music reading has not been piano oriented! Some months ago I read an incredible bio of Erich Wolfgang Korngold.)

"Just Being at the Piano" by Mildred Portney Chase is a favorite of mine to share with students, especially adult students. I didn't see this one on your list.
Nice idea for a thread, Deborah. What a wonderful selection of good reads!
