The Contemporary Piano: A Performer and Composer’s Guide to Techniques and Resources Kindle Edition
Alan Shockley’s The Contemporary Piano: A Performer and Composer’s Guide to Techniques and Resources gives descriptions and instructions for the complete range of modern extended techniques for the piano. His clear, practical presentation of the material is useful for both performers and composers.― Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association
This book is a welcome comprehensive guide to nontraditional techniques for the piano, and for pianists who are interested in playing repertoire which requires techniques and/or implements unfamiliar to both the instrument and to the performer. . . This book is a must-have resource for any performance pianist or orchestra playing contemporary music for the piano. ― American Reference Books Annual
Not since Richard Bunger’s seminal book on prepared piano in 1973 has anyone dared tackle the ever burgeoning topic of extended piano techniques. Alan Schockley’s new book is extensive, well researched and utterly necessary for any pianist preparing to explore the repertoire of our time. -- Vicki Ray, chair of Keyboard Studies, California Institute of the Arts
Alan Shockley’s new book will be indispensable to pianists who perform modern and contemporary music. We have long needed a guide this thorough, well-organized, and detailed, with plentiful examples from new and historical repertoire. -- Sarah Cahill, pianist, radio host, and faculty, San Francisco Conservatory of Music --This text refers to the paperback edition.
