Spanish edition of Boris Berman’s book released, translated by Hector Sanchez ’04DMA

The Spanish translation of Professor Boris Berman’s book Notes from the Pianist’s Bench has been released. Hector Sanchez ’04DMA, a pianist who studied with Berman at the Yale School of Music, is the translator. The book has already been published in Chinese (traditional characters), Korean, and Japanese.

Notes from the Pianist’s Bench, selected by Choice as an Outstanding Academic Title upon its publication in 2001, draws on Berman’s vast experience as a Russian-trained concert pianist and highly respected educator to explore issues of piano technique and music interpretation. Combining explanations and advice with anecdotes about his students, colleagues, and former teachers, Berman also provides many insights into the psychological aspects of musical performance and the teaching of music.
