Fellow Pianist

December 23, 2013 in News Tags: , , ,

In an interview with the great pianist accompanist Miguel Zannetti, said would have to eradicate the word pianista-acompanante, and replace it with another as for example pianist Chamber. If we understand the term companion, as a person who accompanies us in the sense of artistic accomplishment, of person who helps us to perform an interpretation of a friend that we watch and listen attentively from behind, there’s nothing of pejorative. All good soloist, knows the importance of being embraced by a pianist who rely on, which helps to temper the nerves of the performance, that in moments of inspiration leads in pawned to the soloist or in the difficult moments of any passage takes the reins. It is the table of salvation which the soloist takes on the stage. A good piano accompanist is a guarantee, and this big professionals know it. Some and especially singers, form stable duos that last a lifetime, like a marriage. The piano accompanist is a professional who knows the particularities of the repertoire, style, the musical evolution of the great pianists instruments have devoted part of its activity to accompany, Rachmaninoff, Horowitz, Baremboin, Askenazy others have exclusively focused its activity in accompany g.

Moore. H. Deucht or M. Zannetti Spaniards or e. Arnaltes.

Pappano unfortunately in Spain you can not study specializing in piano accompanist unlike that in other European countries, and the practice of students in conservatories is limited to some few kinds of Chamber music, several of the great conductors have also been excellent early pianists accompanists or opera as Abbado, Mutti, Levine, Sawallisch correpetidorestaken as an additional subject. Here the pianist is at a distinct disadvantage with the companions of rope play in group with the Orchestra or the winds in the bands, while the pianist spends long hours of study only, without sharing your interpretation with anyone. Conservatories they have pianists accompanists, however there is a specific access for this task in the system of oppositions to entry of the conservatories, encompassing is along teachers piano and complementary piano (equal otherwise). So the piano accompanist or whoever it is you just go studying the repertoire on their own, expand their knowledge about the rest of instruments, the particularities of each of them (emission, arches, articulations, tuning), knowledge of languages to accompany singers, stylistic characteristics, etc., all this after making his piano studies just like any teacher of piano or soloist. Hard road for so little recognition.
