Ian Munro: The Beauty of Repertoire
Pianists are both blessed and burdened by the enormous repertoire bequeathed to us by generations of composers, great, good and various. A loosely-accepted canon comprising significant compositions forms the basis of much of what we know, play and teach, but the sheer size of the wider repertoire available to us can be daunting, and much of it is entirely unknown to the majority of pianists. Yet the importance of getting to grips with just what is contained in our pianistic inheritance is essential, for many reasons. Failing to understand the connection between repertoire and musical development is a failure to avail oneself of the full richness of a musical life.
In this talk, I aim to draw some connections between a quest for knowledge of repertoire through first-hand experience and artistic development, and why I believe that it ought to be at the root of our teaching, learning and artistic practice.
