Start your review of The Art of Piano Playing Write a review Jun 13, Mini Mags [Margaret] rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Pianists Shelves: research Neuhaus is enjoyable to read, but he can be excessively chatty at times. From the material contained in this book, he could have easily had two separate books: 1 a book that gets to the point and is more direct in terms of piano instruction, and 2 another book containing his memoirs and experiences.

Although his writing style is somewhat antique, his pedigree as a musician is inarguable, and I had many illuminating moments while reading this book. He has an annoying habit of constantly addressing the reader and of defending himself against imaginary critics, but other than that he writes with the strong voice of a man who has spent his whole life in the service An interesting book by a legendary teacher who trained the likes of Vladimir Horowitz, Sviatoslav Richter, Radu Lupu, and others. He has an annoying habit of constantly addressing the reader and of defending himself against imaginary critics, but other than that he writes with the strong voice of a man who has spent his whole life in the service of music.
