Pianist issue 137 is out now worldwide

The brand new issue of Pianist featuring the iconic Marc-André Hamelin is out now.

Our Apr/May issue contains spring content aplenty as we move into the warmer months (finally!). Alongside Hamelin's exclusive interview - in which he discusses his eclectic range of repertoire - nature and sunny days in abundance within this issue’s scores section. Not one but THREE Lyric Pieces from Grieg are included, plus Daffodil from Gurlitt, March (Song of the Lark) from The Seasons by Tchaikovsky and plenty more.

Our teacher experts are on hand to guide you through masterclasses on speeding up your sight reading and how to create exercises within your pieces, plus Melanie Spanswick, Nils Franke and Lucy Parham are on hand to give you step-by-step lessons on some of this issue's scores.

Elsewhere, we delve into the history of Grieg's famous Lyric Pieces, take a look at pedagogues of the piano (who uses the teaching material of pedagogues Couperin, CPE Bach, Czerny and the rest?), and plenty more.
