George Kochevitsky Collection
Kochevitsky was trained in pre-Revolutionary Russia. Later, he was
intermittently active in the USSR as a performer and teacher. He then made his
way to the U.S., living in New York, where he continued his serious research
into piano methodology, frequently contributing articles to various journals.
His book, "The Art of Piano Playing: A Scientific Approach," was first published
in 1967. Another publication, the 168-page "Performing Bach's Keyboard Music,"
was issued posthumously. It offered the results of Kochevitsky's extensive
investigations into Baroque performance practices.
