Piano Mastery Talks - Reading Together - Fannie Ziesler


"Two things are of supreme importance: namely, firm finger joints and loose wrists; these must be insisted on from the very beginning."
(page 128, Kindle Edition)

"I would rather have an intelligent, earnest, serious pupil, who is obedient and willing to work, than a very gifted pupil."
(page 130, Kindle Edition)

"Pianissimo is one of the later things to teach. A beginner should not attempt it too soon, for then it will only result in flabbiness. A true pianissimo is not the result of weakness but of strength."
(page 132, Kindle Edition)

Piano Mastery Talks - Reading Together - Alexander Lambert


"Scales must be, willingly or unwillingly, the daily bread of the player; the hand must be put in good shape, the finger joints rendered firm, the arms and body supple, before pieces are thought of."
(page 125, Kindle Edition)

"I insist on a thorough knowledge of scales and arpeggios, and a serious study of Bach. I use almost everything Bach ever wrote for the piano; the Two and Three Part Inventions, French and English Suites, Well-tempered Clavichord, and the organ Preludes and Fugues, arranged by Liszt."
(page 127, Kindle Edition)

Piano Mastery Talks - Reading Together - Wilhelm Bachaus


"Of course I have to practise technic; I would not allow it to lapse; I love the piano too much to neglect any part of the work. An artist owes it to himself and the public to keep himself up in perfect condition—for he must never offer the public anything but the best."
(page 122, Kindle Edition)

"I seldom practise with great velocity, for it interferes with clearness. I prefer to play more slowly, giving the greatest attention to clearness and good tone. By pursuing this course I find that when I need velocity I have it."
(page 123, Kindle Edition)

Piano Mastery Talks - Reading Together - Teresa Carreno


"I tell them any one can make a lot of noise on the piano, but I want them, to make the piano speak! I can do only a certain amount for them; the rest they must do for themselves."
(page 117, Kindle Edition)

"I feel the artist has such a beautiful calling—a glorious message—to educate a people to see the beauty and grandeur of his art—of the ideal!"
(page 119, Kindle Edition)
