The volume presents two books by Walter Gieseking, foremost
pianist of his generation, and his teacher for five years, Karl Leimer,
that have long been sought after by students and teachers looking
for a radical approach toward developing not only finger-technique
but exion-technique. Ernphasis throughout is on listening to
one's self and proper understanding as the basis of proper technique
for the piano.
In book one, originally titled The Shortest Way to Pianistic Perfection, Gieseking and Leimer work with a series of piano works-
a study from Lebert and Stark, Bach's Two- and Three-Part Inven-
tions in C, and Beethoven's Sonata in F Minor, Op. 2, No.1. Before
beginning to play, the student is asked to visualize each piece
through silent reading. Through Leimer's instruction in this area
the student soon discovers how to approach each piece as not Inerely
a series of notes to memorize but as a coherent musical structure
to understand. Following are instructions on natural interpretation,
with consideration of touch, relaxation, training of the ear, elimina-
tion of all unnecessary moveUlents and proper emphasis in the
practice. Also given are notes on such topics as etudes, scales,
broken chords, the trill and tranquility.
In book two, Rhythmics, Dynarnics, Pedal and Other Problems of
Piano Playing, Leimer carries his method of visualization further
with a study of the Allemande from Bach's French Suite in E Major.
Following are further exercises and practices for developing other
pianistic techniques with reference to works of other con1posers.
Specific exercises which cover rhythmics, dynan1ics, and phrasing
are designed so that they will benefit not only the pianist but also
perforn1ers on other instruments. Extensive chapters on variety of
touch and the pedal give a great number of techniques and exer-
cises for extending the exive and dynamic range.
