J.S. Bach ~ The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I Prelude & Fugue VII in Eb Major

Here’s the latest offering in my ongoing traversal of the complete Well-Tempered Clavier. I’m recording and sharing my videos of the WTC, and I’m also developing an archive of lessons on each one of the 96 Preludes and Fugues entitled Everything We Need To Know About Playing The Piano We Learn From The Well-Tempered Clavier….

J.S. Bach ~ The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I: Prelude & Fugue VI in d minor

Enjoy this, the latest installment of my survey of the 48, the d minor Prelude & Fugue, Book I. I’m also producing videos as an evolving piano-curricular online archive, one mini-lecture on each of the 96 constituent parts of the Well-Tempered Clavier entitled Everything We Need To Know About Playing The Piano We Learn From…

The latest offering in my survey of The Well-Tempered Clavier.

J.S. Bach ~ The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book One Prelude & Fugue IV in c# minor

As I make my way through recording the complete WTC, I’m also building a piano-curricular archive, videos explicating my thoughts and offering educational moments of more general application on each Prelude and Fugue. The archive will be a rich resource and will be available to those enrolling in my online piano program, soon to be…

J.S. Bach ~ The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book One Prelude & Fugue III in C# Major

Next in the series of my home recordings of the complete Well-Tempered Clavier. I’m also producing videos, sort of like The Making Of for each of the Preludes and Fugues as an evolving  piano-curricular online archive. Fairly soon, those ~15min mini-lesson/lectures will be available exclusively to those signed up to my online piano instruction program…

Everything we need to know about playing the piano we can learn from J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier ~ An online archive and curriculum

I’ll be creating videos for each of the Preludes & Fugues of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, an archive of 96 such mini-lectures; explorations and explications really of my interpretive point of view on each piece, with the hope that my specific meditations and decisions serendipitous and evolving on each Prelude and Fugue will reap resonant rewards…

Johann Sebastian Bach ~ The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book One: Prelude & Fugue II in c minor

Over the coming months, I will be sharing my videos home-recorded on the venerable Steinway CD207 of the complete Well-Tempered Clavier. I have long maintained that there is more to learn about playing the piano from the study of Bach’s music; knowledge, insight, inspiration and imaginative freedom that can be applied to all piano music….

Tears For Fears (arrO’Riley) ~ Woman In Chains

It’s taken me decades to master this 80’s anthem, a favorite and essential arrangement for my darling of many years; a favorite song of hers. I’d originally planned on playing this on Arielle, my concert grand, but my completely rebuilt mahogony 121-year-old Steinway B, Clarice, was clearly the hardest rocking piano in the house. Good…

Radiohead (arrO’Riley) ~ Glass Eyes

I love my Steinway Concert Grand, CD207, house piano at NYC’s 92nd St. Y in the 80’s when she was born, then became Alicia Delarrocha’s favorite piano in NY, finally retired after touring with Billy Joel, and now come to rest in the Hollywood Hills. Hence, these OneTake captures on my favorite piano in the…
