Harold Taylor, author of The Pianist’s Talent, has died
6 February 2014
Essential reading: The Pianist's Talent by Harold Taylor
The pianist Harold Taylor (1925-2014) who died on 24 January will be perhaps best remembered for his widely admired book, The Pianist's Talent (Kahn and Averill) in which he seeks to reconcile the teachings of F Matthias Alexander and Raymond Thiberge, and is a fine and precise study of the art of teaching and performing.
Taylor was born in Macclesfield in 1925 and graduated from the Royal Manchester College of Music (now the RNCM) followed by later studies in Paris under Thiberge and Alfred Cortot. He subsequently developed a career as pianist, lecturer-recitalist, writer and teacher, and as Head of Music at Bromsgrove College was responsible for running the Bromsgrove Festival.
His knowledge of pianism and pianists was encyclopaedic and he brought to his teaching both expertise and a sympathetic understanding.
