HASH(0xa52bc7e0) out of 5 stars Very instructive! Sept. 27 2014
By Paul Naud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very instructive book! There are however more than one russian school. This book doesn't give any explanation related to the different branches of the russian school.
This book is a translation of many articles on piano playing written by Masters of the russian school, or written advice reported by their students.
The chapters dedicated to Lev Naumov"s teaching are great!
