A Brief Survey of Piano Teaching DVDs: The Art of Rhythmic Expression – EPTA Reviews

The Golandsky Institute has recently released a three-DVD set by the piano doyenne Edna Golandsky, documenting masterclasses at Princeton University in 2004. The Art of Rhythmic Expression continues where the previous collection of ten VMS from the Taubman Institute ended, with Golandsky showing both expertise and warmth in her practical demonstrations. The production quality is first class, allowing us to see and understand Golandsky’s particular approach to movement across the instrument, as the forearm controls nuanced hand movements, creating curvilinear shapes and phrases.
