Lockdown Pianist Alphabet - Z
We have come to Z. The last letter in this project reflects the endeavours of Alexander Siloti. He pushed #piano #technique to new levels. Siloti acquired this facility through a #regime of disciplined, isolated hours of studies that were inflicted upon him, then which became accepted and self-maintained. Yet, out of seemingly the most mundane #exercise that is carried out little more than with a sense of #duty and perhaps #faith in its future benefit, Siloti unearthed and created masterpieces that challenge even the most seasoned pianists.
Lockdown’s musical A-Z may have finished, but there is still plenty to observe, experiment with and say. As surreal as it is to play for and communicate with a virtual audience, I hope to continue with more before long. Watch this space!
