Ruth’s book: Right Before Your Eyes: A Fresh Approach to Interpreting a Piano Score, was released in August 2015.
In engaging and informal language, Ruth Price invites pianists to look for the “magic” in well-known works from both concert and student repertoire. What gives a piece its identity? How can we get inside the composition in order to develop an interpretation? What makes us fall in love with certain passages? This book passionately delves into piano music through score study, based on the idea that if we start with our emotional reactions to the music, analysis and interpretation will flow more naturally. It is an indispensable handbook for pianists, and for teachers of piano students at every level.
