Portraits in Rhythm
Welcome to this video presentation of the 50 Etudes from Portraits in Rhythm by Anthony J. Cirone. A personal interpretation for each etude is offered by the author in a master-class setting, along with his comprehensive analysis and performance.
While viewing the etudes, it is recommended to have a copy of Portraits in Rhythm or Portraits in Rhythm Complete Study Guide to follow along as Cirone discusses rhythm, phrasing, dynamics, articulations, musical directives, and tempo indications. In this way, notations for future reference can be indicated in the music.
