The second volume of the treatise acclaimed by Busoni as "the most monumental work ever written on piano playing," this long-unavailable book presents the best techniques for practicing scales. The author compiled these exercises from contributions by the most famous piano virtuosos of the early twentieth century. The experts also provide advice on diatonic, glissando, and chromatic scales; legato, staccato, and portamento; touch; tone and quality; the singing tone and accuracy; and how to play without striking wrong notes.
Introductory material is presented in English, German, Italian, and French. This new edition from a long out-of-print series includes a new Introduction and Foreword, plus rare photos by the author's last living student.
