From Bach to Gershwin: The Best Loved Piano Works

220 TUTOR: Alice Michahelles

Why and how do Chopin's Nocturnes move us? What is sonata form? This course offers an overview of the history of classical music for piano and the development of compositional tools and techniques. By way of illustration, some compositions will be played on the screen. Your tutor, a concert pianist, will also offer live performances of favourite piano pieces from throughout the centuries. The course will feature piano music from Bach to the Viennese classical composers of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. It will continue through to the Romantic period of Chopin, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Rachmaninoff and up to the early 20th century with Debussy, Ravel, Joplin and Gershwin.
