A Note of Explanation from Craig

Nov. 21st, 2008

A number of my friends around the world have written me in the past few months,  noting that no concerts have been listed as yet for the present season, and wondering what's been going on.

The truth is, I have taken a partial and temporary sabbatical from performing, and am rather enjoying it!  This came about through a confluence of events.  

Firstly, I have been under enormous pressure during the past few years, putting out at least one new CD (or a set) every year while maintaining a full studio load of teaching at the University of Washington here in Seattle.  Since I adore teaching and love working with my students,  finding the time to practice the hours necessary to achieving the level I demand of myself in the great works of Bach, Beethoven, or whomever, on top of all my duties at the university, is a constant challenge.  So, I have felt the need to have a temporary break from performing for quite some time.   This self-imposed sabbatical has only affected my current concert schedule.  I am not on sabbatical from the university.

Secondly, a couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with an enchondroma inside my right thumb. You can google this for a better explanation, but what it is essentially is a benign cartilaginous cyst growing on the bone inside the finger. Anyone can develop this condition - it apparently has nothing whatsoever to do with ones piano playing (which makes sense - if this were the case, we'd all be developing enchondromas on all our fingers, given the amount of exercion we put on them). I knew that an eventual operation was inevitable, but kept putting it off due to my concert commitments.    In April of this year, following our trip to New Zealand, I went in for a check-up for what turned out to be a minor arthritic problem in my right wrist.  I was also having frequent pain in my thumb, and X-rays showed that the enchondroma had grown enormously.  My surgeon told me that the bone risked fracturing, and an operation was necessary, sooner than later.  In his words, were the bone to crack, it would be ten times harder to repair!   You can imagine how this news hit me, a couple of weeks before performing and recording Book II of The Well Tempered Clavier!  To boot, I had a trip to China and a few other commitments still to honor.   On the other hand, how lucky I learned the truth before it was too late!!

The operation took place on July 31st. I was very fortunate to have a great surgeon, Thomas Trumble of the University of Washington Sports Clinic, who told me immediately post-op that he hadn't had to cut through any tendons. This was a blessing, and meant that the recuperation period has been much shorter than would have been expected. As of mid-November, I am functioning fully (and still making the same sorts of mistakes I made prior to the operation. Surgery doesn't correct everything...!). I'm enjoying doing more things in the community, including several adjudications which I would have declined otherwise for lack of time. I'm also enjoying exploring new, and old, repertoire, for concerts next season. One project which I've had in mind for some time is to present a series of concerts in the Fall of 2009 dedicated to piano sonatas written in Terezin between 1942 to 1944 by two composers subsequently killed in Auschwitz, Viktor Ullman and Gideon Klein. Another is a desire to revisit, and record, the complete Brahms solo piano works, which I performed many years ago at the Wigmore Hall in London.

Stay tuned for updates!!

Best of Bach: The Two and Three-Part Inventions, BWV 772-801

Craig Sheppard continues his highly acclaimed Best of Bach cycle with the Two and Three Part Inventions, originally known as the Aufrichtige Anleitung (roughly translated, this means A Father's Honest and Sincere Instructions!). These were the first works that Bach composed for his children and early students as a means toward developing effective and inventive voice-leading at the keyboard. These fascinating little pieces figure perennially in the pedagogy of younger students, yet are rarely performed by a major artist in public. Piano teachers in the Puget Sound area will want to bring along their students to hear this once-in-a-lifetime experience. There might even be a few extra surprises on the evening...
