Professor Robert Greenberg of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music analyzes The Emperor’s Concerto with all the erudite detail you would expect from the SuperStar Teachers audio series. The dramatic, flamboyant Professor Greenberg practically jumps out of one’s tape player. One imagines him strutting in front of his classroom, hair flying, as he presents his passionate, quirky, anthropomorphized version of Beethoven’s conflict between piano and orchestra. Conflict--this is a near brawl! The presentation is perfect for audiotape because you can rewind. However, don’t listen in the car--unless you’re familiar with both the music and its structure, you’ll need to follow along the lecture notes provided. Bravissimo! More! More!
