Rubinstein and Carreno: The Art of Piano Pedaling
Rubinstein is considered Liszt’s only possible rival on the concert stage while CarreÃ±o is the foremost woman pianist of the late 19th century. Together, they discuss “the soul of the piano:” the art of piano pedaling. Rubinstein’s technique is explored through works he performed in 1885-6. CarreÃ±o’s observations explore her sensitivity made possible through combinations of touch and pedal.
