Product Details


Theodor Leschetizky, the great pianist and teacher, was renowned for his singing tone and his intelligent, expressive use of brilliant technique. He believed that great performances could not be attained through the use of any rigid method, but that a thorough training in the technical aspects of performance was absolutely essential. In this volume, one of his students offers advanced instruction in piano technique as she learned it from Leschetizky himself. Dealing in widely applicable principles rather than strictly prescribed methods, Marie Prentner offers more than 100 exercises and examples, as well as advice on practice, performance, expression, etc., with many clear illustrations.
Unabridged republication of The Modern Pianist, Theo. Presser, Philadelphia, 1903. [8 3/8 x 11, 96 pp.]
