"A bible for accompanists/ collaborators!"--Marilyn Horne
"This book is exactly like its author: brilliant, witty, passionate, practical, and utterly compelling. Every pianist will want to read it; every singer and instrumentalist who will ever collaborate with a pianist should mine its gems."--Dr. Alan L. Smith, Director of Keyboard Collaborative Arts,
University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music
"It comes as no surprise that our beloved Martin Katz has found yet another way to give greatness to the world of music, this time through his most wonderful book, guide, missal, The Complete Collaborator. His is a knowledge that comes from the heart, and this latest work reflects beautifully not
just his expertise but the passion behind it, the deep and true love of music and music making that has earned him the prestige, affection and respect of all of his fortunate "Collaboratees!"-- Frederica von Stade
"As to be expected, Martin Katz has given us a good and timely book, excellently written and useful in many ways. Highly recommended. " --Vladimir Feltsman
"The book's usefulness is augmented by a correlated website that offers over 100 recorded examples, including some which are performances of entire songs. Katz deftly demonstrates, with the aid of two singers, the skills that earn him accolades as a collaborative pianist...The knowledge will benefit
singers in their performances. For voice pedagogues...the information is invaluable, both in accompanying lessons and preparing studenst to work with pianists...HIghly recommended." --Journal of Singing
