Manhattan School of Music Piano Legacies (revised)

“Piano Legacies” was created by MSM historian John K. Blanchard for faculty member Lisa Yui’s Lives of the Piano series, in celebration of the School’s centennial. Produced to compliment Yui’s October 2018 lecture-demonstration, it features the legacies of two formidable members of the MSM piano faculty — DORA ZASLAVSKY KOCH (1904–1987) and CONSTANCE KEENE (1921–2005) — and highlights the invaluable roles the two individuals played in the history of the School.

The video is the winner of two Silver 2020 Telly Awards, in the categories of “Non-Broadcast Craft: Use of Music” and “Non-Broadcast General: Low Budget.”
