Description

The Pianist's Dictionary is a handy and practical reference dictionary aimed specifically at pianists, teachers, students, and concertgoers. Prepared by Maurice Hinson, the best-selling author of Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire, the work explains pianistic terms and performance directions clearly and concisely, with illustrations and brief musical examples. Hinson includes succinct entries concerning famous piano pieces and composers, leading performers and teachers, and piano makers-making The Pianist's Dictionary the perfect reference for compiling program and liner notes. The volume collects many of Hinson's most useful ideas that have appeared in his popular lectures and masterclasses over the years and have not been published elsewhere.show more

"Hinson's aim is clearly to provide a practical, user-friendly reference for the student and teacher and his tone throughout is informal and familiar... The Pianist's Dictionary projects the voice of an engaging teacher at work in the studio." -Music Reference Services Quarterlyshow more
