Inside tonebase.co on Between the Keys December 21st and 22nd
On this week’s episode of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed DIstler welcomes pianist and educator Ben Laude, head of piano at tonebase.co.
Since 2019, Mr. Laude has been responsible for producing, directing, and overseeing post-production of in-depth tutorial videos and interviews for tonebase.co with pianists from all over the world, covering the craft of piano playing in all its breadth and variety. “Ben is the kind of educator, communicator and catylist who helps keep piano culture alive and meaningful in our technologically oriented age,” Distler says. "I’ve learned so much from our association, needless to say."
Mr. Laude presents interview and instruction audio clips with Leon Fleisher, Emanuel Ax, Garrick Ohlsson, Claire Huangci and Andrew Tyson. Also featured will be a performance of CHopin's Nocturne in E-flat Op. 55 No. 2 performed exclusively for tonebase.co by Emanuel Ax, who is a former Between the Keys guest.
