In what year did you first year of the term "collaborative pianist"?Here are the answers after the first 50 votes:
- 1990 or before - 6%
- 1991-1995 - 16%
- 1996-2000 - 8%
- 2001-2005 - 36%
- 2006-present - 34%
After initial slow growth in the 80's and slightly larger growth in the nineties (dropping off in the last few years before 2000, as I had noticed before in the musical community), the term "collaborative pianist" only gained real steam after 2000 when universities started creating or renaming their programs to reflect the term, possibly helped by the growth of this blog and its not-so-hidden agenda (to spread the word about the possibilities of the collaborative piano field).
Any other thoughts on the data? Don't forget that the poll is a continuing one, and you can still vote here.
