I am looking for websites with really good introductions to the great piano composers, for instance Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Bach etc. Not as elaborate as their Wikipedia pages, but still high quality, also with a discussion about the period in which they worked. Do you know of any such websites?


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

I've enjoyed watching the intros on this channel, they're concise and quite informative.

They have links to resources and lists of recommended pieces to listen to. You can also ask questions there as the community is very knowledgeable.

Not a website but a book: The Great Pianists by Harold C Schonberg

If you haven't already read it I highly recommend it.
