We would like to share with you our new Piano Talks episode: Master Class with Vladimir Feltsman.
Bach always presents an interesting challenge for pianists, as he wrote for a completely different keyboard instrument. Vladimir Feltsman teaches works by J.S. Bach: a prelude and fugue from The Well-Tempered Clavier, as well as the Bach-Busoni Chaconne.
“To have, let’s say beauty of the tone, or whatever sound colors, it’s not a technical matter. You have to have it, when you have it, it will come out through your hands.”
