Fresh for 2020, I am overhauling the schedule and rationale of reviews on the Pianodao blog. Here’s a quick summary of what to expect.
Previously I have tried reviewing as many publications as possible. Having long focused on those which most interest and impress me, each review has ended with a rating: Recommended, Highly Recommended or Outstanding.
Including too many reviews can prove somewhat overwhelming however, both for me as their writer, and for Pianodao readers sifting through them all in search of something suitable.
Addressing the balance from this month, my Pianodao Choice review each midweek will showcase one publication of special interest. And each month I will try to include repertoire suitable for all, from beginner to virtuoso pianist.
I am doing away with simplistic ratings, and hope that readers will approach Pianodao Choices mindfully, using the information and opinions within each review to help identify resources which for them deserve a closer look.
I will continue publishing larger group review articles as these can complement the weekly Pianodao Choice nicely, as well as the Recording of the Month and Building a Library book reviews.
And in addition to the midweek reviews, new Pianodao articles each weekend will of course continue to address the broader Way of Piano.
