"There is no book like it in the English or any other language; it covers the gamut of technical development from Diruta to John Cage." - MAURICE HINSON, SENIOR PROFESSOR OF PIANO, THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
"Professor Gerig's . . . book has value not only for the scholar as an extremely fascinating historical tracing of various major performers, composers, and pedagogues, but an equally vital use as a reference work for the performer involved in the art of playing the piano." - JOSEPH BANOWETZ, PROFESSOR OF PIANO, UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS
Famous Pianists And Their Technique is a comprehensive resource for students, teachers, and professional pianists who seek to discover the secrets of how the immortal pianists of the last three centuries developed and polished their technique.
