New age piano in performance and the sustain pedal - music

 

There are 3 reins on most pianos. The one on the left dampens the strings and makes the sound come out softer. The one in the central point - I have no idea what that one does, but the one on the right - the sustain pedal - this one is the pedal I have my foot on when I play the piano.

I like to let the tones ring out, but if I keep the sustain pedal depressed for too long, the music turns into a mud lake - hundreds of overtones advent out everywhere. Don't let anybody tell you that there is a apposite way to pedal the piano.

Each style of music uses the sustain pedal differently. New age music, opportunely for us, is much more liberal with its use. Why? Since we as a rule throw the pedal "rules" out the window. The key to pedaling is to eavesdrop for the sound YOU WANT then pedal accordingly.

How do you think the great pianists and composers of the past did it? Do you think they asked themselves, "well maybe I must pedal here?" Of avenue not. They put pedal marks down where they themselves used it in a piece. You be supposed to do the same.

There's nobody like the ringing sound of overtones you get when you let the notes hang in mid-air. In fact, this is one of the charms of the piano - that enigmatic echo barely apparent to the amateur ear, but there but given that conviviality and practicality to the music.

It's all accomplished because of the use of the sustain pedal. When you want your music to breathe, use it. Conduct experiment with it. Don't be scared to keep it depressed for as long as you want to.
