Lecture Recital with Michal Tal

August 16 @ 17:15 - 18:00


The preeminent Israeli pianist Michal Tal enjoys a busy and versatile international career, performing throughout to great acclaim. She presents at her concerts “A breathtaking performance” (Tel Aviv) and “Imaginative fingers” (London).

Helene de Montgerout – the piano pioneer

Described as “The link between Mozart and Chopin” – Helene de Montgeroult (1764-1836) was one of the greatest figures in the piano world, as a pianist, composer and celebred pedagogue.

The composer  who was saved from the Guillotine by her artistry , and was the first woman professor at the Paris Conservatoire , contributed immensely to the piano technique and sound . Two decades preceding Chopin’s etudes  she produced her celebrated piano method, the three-volume “Cours complet pour l’enseignement du forte piano” consisting 114 etudes . Here she focuses on fingerings, hand positions, and other techniques that produce a sustained cantabile or singing sound similar to that of the voice or a bowed string instrument. Many etudes are beautiful concert pieces. Some examples from her etudes will be presented.

Pieces that will be performed fully:

Sonata no. 3 in F sharp Minor

Fantasy in G minor

Free to all summer school participants. Tickets available to the public from the Stoller Hall.
