The Art of Piano Performance

Stemming from Heinrich Neuhaus and Konstantin Igumnov piano lineage that perceives the art of piano performance as a poetic idiom, fascinating inspiration, and cultural component to express emotional, intellectual, and philosophical experience, Eteri Andjaparidze imparts these aesthetics in her teaching.  The principles of the masterclass aim to guide students in their search for true mastery, where playing the instrument is identified as a spontaneous and effortless expression of spiritual freedom, and technical prowess is seen not as an end in itself but as a step to eloquent delivery of artistic message.
