That copy was missed placed so recently I got a new and more updated copy.

It is a history of the piano told from the point of view of the personalities of the pianists themselves by a Pulitzer Prize winning New York times music critic. I warmly recommend this book as an introduction to the great pianists of history. Schonberg’s book on “The Great Pianists” brought the history of classical pianists to life.


It is an interesting read of the musical trends of these many periods. I learned that the approach to music in the Romantic period was far different from the goal of being true to the text in our time. It is a very detailed history of most if not all of the great pianists. This is a fabulous book that will be a classic for all time–a big improvement over texts on music history I read as a college student.

It is inspiring and useful for pianists of all levels but also makes delightful and valuable reading even for music lovers who are not musicians themselves. It is filled with personal information about the great pianists and so entertaining that it ended up replacing some of the crime and mystery novels I was reading just for pleasure.

Very readable and full of wonderful info. Very long with small print. Probably great on kindle.

I purchased this book as a gift. I have read it, and from time to time, reference it. As a pianist that travels fairly extensively, I take it with me. It is enjoyable even as a re-read. If you love classical piano music, this is the book for hxrold I had never heard of Teodor Leschetizky except from my piano teacher who had studied with him Really interesting to see into the lives of composers and how they overlap.


This is an entertaining read for serious pianists or people who like music history.
