Interpreting Bach at the keyboard by Paul Badura-Skoda( Book )

"The ever-increasing number of performances of Bach's music is a sign of its enduring vitality. But perhaps no other composer is subject to such a wide diversity of interpretation--assessing the merits of these many interpretations and unravelling the sources and documents on which they are based can be extremely difficult for the modern performer. In this important new book, Paul Badura-Skoda draws on forty years of studying and performing Bach to present startling new insights into many different aspects of Bach's music. He looks at rhythm, tempo, articulation, and dynamics; examines the instruments for which Bach's music was intended, and considers problems of sonority. He then discusses ornamentation in depth, analyzing each of the signs and symbols used by Bach, and argues that much of Bach's ornamentation in current performance is monotonous and fails to reflect the actual Baroque style. Sometimes contentious, always stimulating, Badura-Skoda's book conveys a passion for an informed interpretation of Bach's music based on a recognition and respect for Bach's actual intentions. Copiously illustrated with musical examples, the book will take its place as a standard work for all students and performers of Bach's ever-popular keyboard music."--Publisher's description

In seinem Todesjahr 1828 komponierte Franz Schubert seine letzten 3 "großen" Klaviersonaten (D 958-960), denen die unterschiedlichen Tonarten eine spezielle Programmatik geben. So symbolisiert das A-Dur der mittleren Sonate "jugendliche Heiterkeit und Gottvertrauen". Neben zahlreichen anderen Klavierwerken sind von Schubert auch über 500 Tänze überliefert. Von vielen existiert nur eine flüchtige Ideenskizze, andere sind bereits zu Lebzeiten in Sammlungen publiziert worden. Sie wurden gerne bei den sogenannten "Schubertiaden" im privaten Kreis seiner Freunde genutzt. - Nur wenige Pianisten sind den scheinbar so schlichten Tänzen gewachsen. Mit der Leichtigkeit, mit der Christian Zacharias sie interpretiert, gehört er auf jeden Fall dazu. Nicht umsonst ist er von der Internationalen Jury des Midem Classical Award zum Künstler des Jahres 2007 erklärt worden

At age 78, Paul Badura-Skoda is considered to be one of the great pianists of his generation, as well as an important scholar who has created definitive editions of many of the works of the Viennese masters, most notably Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. With his wife, the noted musicologist Eva Badura-Skoda, he wrote the highly influential Interpreting Mozart on the Keyboard, first published in German in 1957, then in English and Japanese in 1962 and 1963, respectively. Long out of print, this important work has never been updated to reflect the last half-century of scholarship on Mozart's music. Now, the husband-and-wife team have tackled this project, producing an entirely new text that will serve students and scholars of keyboard literature and of the great composer. The book begins by addressing the problems associated with performing Mozart's piano music on "modern" instruments. It then moves through each element of performance-from dynamics to tempo and rhythm, articulation, ornamentation, embellishments, and cadenzas. Badura-Skoda is particularly well-known for his personal approach to performing these works, and his notes on how he both tries to rigorously recreate the composer's intentions while still inserting his own personality into each performance will be of great interest to students of the piano repertory. The book then addresses problems of "text" (scholarship on Mozart's scores), technical questions related to the piano itself, and how to play "continuo" (accompaniments that are indicated only by skeletal notation in the original scores). Finally, in an entirely new section, the pianist discusses four key works by Mozart, showing how the analysis of the book can be applied to practical examples. Interpreting Mozart on the Keyboard takes a classic work and brings it freshly up to date. It will stand as the definitive statement from a master pianist [Publisher description]
