Many distinguished composer- pianists have written some of the most sublime music in the western European classical tradition for the piano. Much of this music is exceedingly virtuosic, and consequently it has amazed and delighted audiences for generations. We will examine critical and popular opinions about virtuosity through the music of Mozart, Beethoven, the great Romantics such as Chopin and Liszt, the innovative Impressionists Debussy and Ravel, and twentieth- century giants Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Bartok, Gershwin. Lecture, with considerable in- class demonstrations through video and live performance
