pianistic tone production

pianistic tone production

This snapshot shows the crucial moment of a pianistic tone production: By pressing down a key the accelerated hammer lifts the damper, thus hitting against the 3 chords causing them to vibrate freely. This seemingly simple but in fact very complex process symbolizes one of my basic pianistical principles : Discovering the sensual beauty of the piano sound by a prepared, controlled touch, evading the common image of treating it like a percussion instrument by “hurting” ( unluckily provoked by the german word “Anschlag”). Even after 40 years of performing on this unique combination of key – and string instrument, a truly ingenious product of human phantasy and power of imagination , I am still fascinated by its secrets of sound origination which can never be rationally disclosed or explained.

The unlimited possibilities of sound differenciation, of articulation, of legato playing in accordance with a stylistically flexible pedalization have always been the stimulus for my occupation as pianist and my dedication to that wonderful musical instrument and its rich, immense repertoire.
