A Note from

Jon Kimura Parker

Dear friends,

The Grieg Piano Concerto holds a special place in my heart because it was the first concerto I was invited to play with a professional orchestra: in my case, my hometown Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, when I had just turned 20. The guest conductor Harry Ellis Dickson then invited me to play it with the Boston Pops! My first New York concerto performance was also with the Grieg, as winner of the Juilliard Concerto competition. I continue to perform this wonderful work every season.

It was a great joy to share my thoughts on this much beloved concerto from my studio at Rice University. Thoughts of every lesson I’d had on it with Adele Marcus, and every lesson that I’ve subsequently given to my students, reverberate throughout this video. I’ve also experienced the Grieg through the baton of dozens of conductors, and their ideas are also expressed through my presentation.

It is my sincere hope that you will find these ideas and observations useful and interesting!

tonebase reveals the tips and tricks of the experts. I learnt important aspects of technique and how to express myself better musically, to get to the core of the music and to realize the composers idea.

This is one of the best ideas ever! Not everyone can get access to the best teachers even in the world, but to have lessons from professional pianists who have great expertise and know to express ideas in a clear way inspires me to keep working!
