Andrew researches nineteenth-century improvisatory praxis at the piano and its effect on musical structure and textual authority, focusing on Liszt, Czerny, and Wieck. Taking the flexibility of early nineteenth-century musical texts as a starting point, his dissertation asks how the “passage-practice” methods of improvising pianists affected their views of musical text.
