Composers in the mid and late 20th century produced some of the finest piano repertoire ever written. Sadly, much of its beauty is still undiscovered by teachers and their students. In this enlightening DVD on 20th century piano music, Dr. Stewart Gordon breaks through misconceptions about the musicality and performance appeal of contemporary music. He offers insights into how to interpret, teach and perform the music - and enjoy the process! The lecture is organized into three sections in which Dr. Gordon analyzes and performs intermediate to advanced-level repertoire by respected composers Sol Berkowitz, George Crumb, Richard Faith, Leo Kraft, Halsey Stevens and Bruce Wise. One hour.
