Workshop with Edwin Gnandt presented by BCRMTA Richmond
On November 6, 2019 at 10:30 am, BCRMTA Richmond Branch is pleased to present an extended workshop with Edwin Gnandt. He will explore topics from his two most recent books – “Understanding Chopin Piano Style” and “The Soul of the Music: Gifts from the Golden Age of Piano.” We welcome all our members, visitors and guests to join us at the Salvation Army – Richmond Community Church, 8280 Gilbert Road.
Edwin Gnandt enjoys a collaborative career in music as pianist, accompanist, author, adjudicator, competition juror, workshop clinician, international speaker and Professor of Piano and Music at Ambrose University in Calgary. He adjudicates festivals across Canada and recently as a juror for the Canadian Music Competition (CMC), the National Stepping Stone Competition, the Bosendorfer (BC) Piano Competition, and the Steinway Junior Competition.
Mr. Gnandt has studied at the University of Washington (Randolph Hokanson, Bela Siki), University of Edinburgh, Scotland (Canada Council Grant), and the Juilliard School of Music (Adele Marcus). He has recorded for the CBC with a variety of artists of national and international stature. He is listed in the Lexington’s Who’s Who of Professionals in North America.
In recent years, Mr. Gnandt has conducted extensive research into the mind and music of Chopin. In preparation for his soon-to-be released book (2019) entitled “The Inner World of Fryderyk Chopin: Psychology, Medicine and the Majorca Period,” he has made research trips to Paris, France and the Carthusian Monastery in Valldemossa on the island of Majorca where Chopin spent the winter of 1838-1839.
Mr. Gnandt will be bringing copies of his books to the workshop for you to purchase. Cost of this workshop for non-branch members and guests is $20 at the door. For more information or to let us know you are coming, please contact:
