Heli Ignatius-Fleet’s course is for all pianists, including those who teach. In an inspiring, supportive atmosphere she offers detailed work on piano music, focusing in particular on the elusive, non-notated, expressive aspects. The suggested pieces will be comprehensively studied also in terms of structure and technique. Own choice pieces are welcome, too. Issues such as harmonic awareness, phrase shaping, chord voicing and pedalling will be addressed in a practical context, as means for expression. There will be a chance to work on specific pianistic problems as well as teaching issues in themed workshops. Participants are invited to prepare items from the list (available on application); one or two pieces of own choice are also welcome.
