Beyond the Score at Benslow Music

… a piano course on interpretation

October 23rd – 26th 2017 – with Heli Ignatius-Fleet

This lively course  will focus  on bringing pieces of music alive, “lifting music off the page”, by  studying a few piano compositions in great detail. The sessions will include everything needed for informed playing  including structural analysis, rhythmic issues and voicing Teaching issues will also be addressed. 

The course will study piano works particularly with their expressive contents in mind; harmonic awareness, phrase-shaping and structure will be discussed in a practical context. We will also address technical issues, and for piano teachers we plan a workshop on teaching issues.

Heli will provide a list of set works which is sent out well in advance of the course.
