piano lessons free online part 2

Take no notice of 'part 3' (on Youtube)! This is the second video in the course:  complete free online learning to play the piano.  As ever, take your time and learn good habits from a pro, before you make a habit of doing whatever seems easiest!  Complete beginners might like to sit slightly left of middle C, but will gravitate towards middle C as they use the whole keyboard.

Helene Grimaud Ravel Piano Concerto In G

Helene Grimaud Ravel Piano Concerto In G This recording of Ravel was played on BBC Radio 3 this morning. The middle (slow) section is so sensitive I'm surprised the small orchestra don't melt. Don't let the sublime piano playing distract from the rest of the orchestra. A work of art. I hope Maurice Ravel can hear this performance from beyond ... Helene Grimaud Ravel Piano Concerto In G

Keith and Julie Tippett youtube video

The great couple is joined here by Paul Dunmall for a beautiful improvisation.    Famous as Julie Driscoll before her marriage, since the 1970s she has concentrated on experimental vocal music, married jazz musician Keith Tippett and collaborated with him. Her name is now 'Julie Tippetts', thus using the original spelling of her husband's surname. She participated in Keith Tippett's big band

Farewell to Stromness Peter Maxwell Davies

Farewell to Stromness Peter Maxwell Davies Harp solo by Lauren Scott A beautiful composition about a beautiful place in Scotland that was untouched by 'development' at the time ... unlikely to remain so. The same could be said for us. Farewell to Stromness Peter Maxwell Davies Piano  BBC excerpt: Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, holder since 2004 of the ancient royal post of Master of The

Brad Mehldau

Jazz on BBC Radio 3 last night produced several gems from Brad Mehldau's latest live sessions. Very spacey synthesizer sounds and high octane drumming. Like a hybrid of Mahavishnu and Tangerine Dream. YUM! Mehliana (Brad Mehldau & Mark Guiliana) - Just Call Me Nige Brad Mehldau is best known for his jazz piano playing, having toured with his own band and released many CDs. More recently he

Judith Weir - composer

I've been fascinated by Judith's work since first hearing about her on Radio 3. Today's press says she is to become the next master of Queen's music though she might prefer Mistress to Master. It is the musical equivalent of the Poet Laureate. It is pleasing to see a woman gaining such a prestigious post, though her existing role as composer, collaborating with ...

A Night Away - Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau

Guitarist Pat Metheny playing guitar in his collaboration with Brad Mehldau (piano) in Spain, 2007. It's great to hear (and see) two fine improvisers at work, but don't forget the backing duo. Keeping the foundations in place in a far from simple manner isn't easy. Bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard were playing together as teenagers years in Northern California. A Night Away -

Hélène Grimaud piano and wolves

Yesterday, St Cecilia's Day (the patron saint of Music!) I discovered Hélène Grimaud, the French pianist. Not only is she an amazingly energetic pianist (is energetic the best word!?) but she has founded her own nature reserve - a wolf sanctuary in Upper New York State. She is known for her passion for wolves, which she studies and raises. She now divides her time between her musical career
