...
MEA members filled the Chase Room at the Madison Library to hear Dr. Kaplinsky, chair of The Juilliard School piano department, coach four talented "Young Artists. For more about Dr. Kaplinsky's impressive career click here. Dr. Kaplinsky began with a heartwarming tribute to music teachers, emphasizing the importance and significance of their work.
...
Dr. Kaplinsky posed this question: "What is the biggest challenge?
...
Dr. Kaplinsky recommended isolating each element in the piece. Then listen. Where is the melody going? To produce a rich tone without percussive sound, transfer weight to the finger and slow the descent of the key. Link the melody tones in a continuous line, and think of dynamic indications as being on a continuum, not at preset levels. Dr. Kaplinsky remarked that the notes in the persistent left hand figure are not of equal importance.
...
Joshua showed a great understanding of the music, but Dr. Kaplinsky sharpened this with her discussion of the Beethoven sforzando.
...
Dr. Kaplinsky's main thrust was this: "Rhythmically Entitled is not a good designation.
...
Dr. Kaplinsky suggested that Albert think about the mood changes in movie music and relate that to this piece.
...
"It is a macho piece," said Dr. Kaplinsky. Here, her theme was, "Listen, and Play Right," that is, capture the essence of the piece. Keyboard strategies are required. From the opening bars, where she recommended swinging to the right to drive each chord to the top note, to other sections where she advised balancing the hands by playing the left hand softer, right hand louder, her focus was on bringing out the right notes. She also suggested experimentation with fingering, like substituting a stronger finger for the fourth to improve articulation.
Robert commented: "This Master Class with Ms. Kaplinsky was very instructive and full of positive reinforcement.
...
Ms. Kaplinsky took complex musical ideas and themes and condensed them into simple metaphors. She was very understanding and straightforward. I really enjoyed hearing her feedback and hope to put it to practice. My Master Class with Ms. Kaplinsky inspired me to continue my career in music and to reach new heights."
