Notes and Editorial Reviews

"There are now three volumes in Mordecai Shehori’s Learning By Example Series perfectly geared to the student or young pianist seeking out works of musical worth. None provides difficulties sufficient to plunge the young player into gloom – though they’re hardly simple to master - and there is an alphabet of technical matters to ensure a sure grounding. Their proportions may be small but the musical rewards are great and so will be the feeling of accomplishment once they’ve been securely mastered. In his introduction “to the Learning Pianist” in volume one Shehori takes us through the various technical aspects of the works he plays and adds sagacious advice about the mood of the piece, its inflection, the feeling it’s meant to evoke. Read more Thus he combines, quite unselfconsciously, both technical and expressive components.

And one could hardly want for a more warm, genial and adept guide. His Purcell Minuet in volume one is tonally verdant, Bach’s Minuet in D minor possesses refined eloquence, and there is great poise in the C major Invention. His Handel Sarabande in D minor is controlled and a young player (or an older one) could spend time listening to his control of dynamics, and equally to the clarity of his articulation in C.P.E. Bach’s Solfeggio in C minor, helped by the rather dry recording. Pliancy of phrasing can be gauged from his Mozart Rondo in C major. He plays Kuhlau’s Sonatina with flexibility and Clementi’s sonata with a certain military profile. By the time we reach Mendelssohn and Schumann we find the chances for characterisation have increased; especially in the case of those pieces derived from the Album for the Young. The two K’s – Kabalevsky and Khachaturian provide more up-to-date pleasures in their little pieces.

Touch, pedalling, tone colours, chordal weight, articulation, these are all some of the many, many devices that Shehori will necessarily lead the learner to explore in these educational and captivating volumes."
