George Kochevitsky Collection

Picture of George Kochevitsky, pianistGeorge 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.
