Notes and Editorial Reviews

A provocative DVD by renowned pianist Malcolm Bilson tackling how to correctly interpret original classical music scores.

“Malcolm Bilson demonstrates with an infectious enthusiasm that an understanding of and attention to the score can result in increased musical expressivity and excitement, allowing the music to have its full, radical impact.” ~ Stephen Hough, pianist

“By the sheer zest of his commitment to reappraising the way we play and hear the keyboard music of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, Bilson has probably done more than anyone else toward shifting the lazy, anachronistic clichés to which perfomers often resort. His passion is an inspiration to us all!” ~ Sir John Eliot Gardiner,

“So you think you know how to read music? Malcolm Bilson’s delightful presentation covers the subtle interconnections and confusions among composers’ intentions, musical notation, intellect, instinct, spontaneity, expression, and meaning in musical performance. It will almost certainly set you to re-thinking much of what you thought you knew.” ~ Neal Zaslaw, editor, The New Köchel

In this innovative DVD, Malcolm Bilson questions many of the basic concepts of musical performance taught in conservatories and music schools around the world. He also clearly demonstrates that an insightful reading of the older notations will lead to more expressive and passionate performances.
