For advanced pianist and for pedagogues, Techniques Pianistiques was written by Gerd Kaemper. In French, this book is divided into three main parts: 1. Pre-scientific formation of the technique, 2. Scientific Studies of the technique and 3.Methodic learning of the technique.
The first part focuses on the fact that Piano could be played before the XIX century without all the technical constraint imposed by the scientific formation techniques.
The second part highlights which of these scientific formation techniques were conceived in the XIX century. This part is probably the most important part of the book as it gives a clear and concise explanation of all the techniques.
The third part is about the different ways to acquire these techniques more rapidly, with techniques based on finger actions for example.
Gerd Kaemper is a German virtuoso pianist, who became a Doctor at the Paris University as a result of his research.
