Learning from Eric Ericson

LEARNING FROM ERIC ERICSON.  Richard Sparks has a good post on those who are not familiar with him, including a link with Ericson’s opinion of using the piano in rehearsal: “I often see young conductors continue to play or let the accompanist play when it’s no longer necessary. The basic rule should be to take away the keyboard as quickly as possible. When teaching or observing young conductors I often have to remind them: take the piano away!”  There’s also a link to an interview here.
