This course covers strategies to develop imagination and creativity as resources to intensify the artistic qualities of a piano performance by proposing musical and non-musical activities to stimulate surpassing technical achievement and seeking to encounter musical meaning and communicative impact in piano playing. It also provides readings by relevant authors to support the idea of a Musicology of Performance, understanding the performer not only as a recreator of music but also as a creator.
Ps: Participants should preferably be musicians, but some of the topics discussed are of general interest to university students.
