On Piano Playing is Gyorgy Sandor's complete, practical program for developing the physical .

On Piano Playing is Gyorgy Sandor's complete, practical program for developing the physical skills essential to accomplished playing.

Gyorgy (Gyorgy Sandor) Sandor. This is an outstanding book. Sandor has been praised many times for his subtlety and fine articulation when playing. As well as a performer he was also a teacher at Julliard and Southern Methodist University, Dallas and the University of Michigan. The style being a little dry for some tastes is of no consequence when you realise how much there is to learn on every page of this book. Sandor was a student of Bartok and is best known his performances of Prokofiev, Kodaly and Bartok's fiendishly difficult piano music.

Sandor, Gyorgy On Piano Pla:viJIs 1. Piano-Instruction and study. Thus musicianship and technique are inseparable! This book deals with the technique and art of piano playing. Tech- nique precedes art, and therefore it must be discussed first. S19 78. 041 80-5442 ISBN 0-02-87228 AACR2. In our examination of technique we will be concerned with the human anat- omy, sources of energy (muscles and the force of gravity), and the characteristics of the piano. While innumerable motions are involved in piano playing, we can identify them as variants of a very limited number of fundamental motions.

He wrote a book "On Piano Playing: Motion, Sound, Expression" . On Piano Playing: Motion, Sound and Expression".

Today more than ever, audiences mistake the excessively tense muscular activities of the performer for an intense musical experience, and all too often we see the public impressed and awed by convulsive distortions and spastic gyrations. a b c Sisario, Ben (14 December 2005), Gyorgy Sandor, Pianist Who Trained Under Bartok, Is Dead at 93, New York City: The New York Times, retrieved 22 September 2017.

Points out common errors pianists make, shows the correct way to play basic technical patterns, and gives exercises for improving coordination, strength, and flexibility.

I believe Mr. Sandor's (pronounced SHAHN-dor, BTW) book to be the best book on piano technique out there. It's a bit pricey, but worth it.
Mr. Sandor was a student of Bartok and is an award-winning concert pianist. I'm a physician with an engineering background, and I can tell you that Mr. Sandor also has an exceptional understanding of the piano mechanism and of the dynamics of the human body, *and* is a very clear writer. He explains not only the proper physical technique to get the sounds you want, but also explains from a musical standpoint what sound you should be striving for and why, as well as including many useful tidbits along the way, such as the proper timing of grace notes.
Mr. Sandor explains why many of the popular (and painful!) techniques and exercises are not only unnecessary, but harmful both physically and musically. Mr. Sandor himself is the best testimony to the validity of his methods. I had the privilege of hearing him play at age 89, and of hearing his remarkable sound unfettered by a long lifetime of wear and tear on his joints and muscles.
This book would be of most benefit to a budding professional classical pianist, serious young student, or professional piano pedagogue, but is also very helpful to a not-very-good amateur such as myself.
All in all, a very solid, sensible work.
88melter here. I have been advised by devotees of another out-of-print piano publication, whose basic approach I disagree with, that I ought to write something positive about the Sandor volume, instead of merely criticising the writings of this other person. ( I thought my negative review of the other book was at least humourously phrased, a fact they did not seem to agree with, either!)
Anyway, the Sandor book is the summation of the better part of a century of scientific researches into just what makes the piano sound the way it does, and how a person seated in front of one can get the sounds they and some composer want out of it. There is a chart in page 141, the first page of Chapter 10, that summarizes the preceeding pages with lucidity and concision. It is titled "Identification and Application of the Basic Technical Patterns"
So, if you find that Sandor's conversational but admittedly repetitous writing gets to be a little much to read,( it really is the way he spoke, try to hear his voice when you read it, he can be heard speaking on the DVD "Art Of Piano", available on Amazon.com) page ahead to this spot, and remember this is where he is leading you.
He has so much essential and practical advice to give, and so little left to the vagaries of Art and Mystery that you will hear the difference in your sound, and that of your pupils, immediately! It is not a shortcut method, there are no Magic Bullets, but only the essentials of relating to the piano as a sound-producing object, and the score as a set of instructions for producing those sounds.
I have made the history of piano pedagogy the subject of my own personal scholarship, in search of the storyline of its development and consequences. This volume is the end result of the Breithaupt, Ortmann, Ching, Bernstein, Fink, and Whiteside methods and experiments, along with score-reading methods to find clues on the page to effectively translate composer's (and editors of those scores, whose fingerprints are everywhere!) intentions into sounds. It supercedes Czerny, Schmitt, Clemeti, Lebert-Stark, and others from the transitional period from the wooden-framed piano to the iron-framed modern grand.
Find a copy or two of the book, and keep one for your own use, and keep one where your teaching studio. The book is, of course, out-of-print, like every obscure masterpiece, and is thus expensive, and growing in value over time.
Your audiences will never need to know how simple and direct your methods are, but your students will most definitly need and want to know!
I am an organist. Nevertheless, I found this book profoundly helpful in developing a good keyboard technique. While it won't help the organist with pedalling (you would have to consult Gleason on that one!), it will help you develop a solid and flawless keyboard technique. The organist must base his or her organ technique on a good piano technique. Even though the fingering is slightly different from the piano to the organ, much can be gained from Sandor. I would highly reccommend this book to any organist or pianist. It is a good, common sense guide to piano technique. Gone are Hanon and Czerny!
The best book available on piano playing

I like the book a lot. The author, whom I saw a lot while being a Juilliard student, analyzed many aspects of piano playing, performance, etc. Some of his remarks contradict what I have learned as a student but nevertheless %90 of what he says is up to the point and quite impressive. To my luck, there are many illustrations of Beethoven's "Waldstein" Sonata when the author talks about arm movements, pedaling, etc.
Book is quite technical but very useful for advanced students who want to improve their dynamics. I will read it many times.
I had read it previously in a library copy, and wanted my personal "desk" copy. It's among the best works ever written on piano technique.
This is a very good book illustrating the human body to piano playing. The book is referred to me by a pianist. If you want to play good piano, don't miss it!
