The Composer's Landscape

(The Pianist as Explorer Interpreting the Scores of Eight Masters)
Carol Montparker - Amadeus Press, Inc.

Derived from a popular series of lecture-recitals presented by Carol Montparker over the past several years, The Composer's Landscape features eight insightful essays on the piano repertoire. Each chapter focuses on a single composer: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Chopin, and Mendelssohn. Montparker uses landscape as a metaphor for the score, whether it be a well-tended garden of Mozart or the thorny thickets on a Schumann page: the topographical peaks and valleys, the circuitous melodic lines, the thoroughfares where all the voices convene, and so on. The discussions include thoughtful suggestions for navigating these "landscapes," which differ so greatly from one composer to the next, taking note of the essential technical and interpretive elements, as well as the challenges for the "explorer pianist." Paperback, 278 p. with CD.
