We begin with an invitation to discover a work: Sigrid Naumann offers “improvisational preliminary exercises” that pave the way to the various pieces and are helpful for learning it. The stylistic palette is extraordinarily varied here. The pieces encompass all epochs from Baroque to classical modernity (Bartók, Kabalevsky, Kurtág, B. Heller); in addition, there are also traditionals and pieces from presentday piano pedagogy. Afterwards we distance ourselves again, for the second invitation goes out to the thematically grouped pieces that open up a variety of possibilities for free formative shaping. The new “Spielregeln – Spielräume” have proven themselves in practice and are supplied with insightful comments.
