Hye Yeong Min joined Cathy Angelo, moderator for the AMN Piano Conversations with Paul Hersh series by Zoom this week to talk about her relationship with Paul and the benefits of attending Paul’s piano studio master classes on a regular basis.
“Piano class has been an incredible experience – I get so much from everyone who is there.
“We meet every two weeks . . . every pianist has a different style, and we benefit from what they think. Paul is amazing – just his depth for the feeling of the music, his perspective as a pianist and a violist and having played so much repertoire for so many years – it’s been a really amazing experience for me. It’s also good to be able to play things differently than you usually do. They challenge you to do it differently on the spot, so you have to be flexible enough as a pianist to be able to do that. Paul is so open to suggestions – he used to play for us and have us comment on his playing. It’s amazing for someone of his stature to do that. He’s so curious about music and welcomes everyone’s thoughts and feelings—very inclusive.”
I hope that you will join AMN’s second session of the Piano Conversations series on April 27 as Paul and Hye Yeong explore one of Schubert’s late piano works, Klavierstucke No. 1 in greater depth.
