Rachel Fuller on the Art of the Collaborative Pianist

Auckland-based pianist Rachel Fuller's conversation with David Moriss on New Zealand's RNZ is worth listening to in its entirely. The collaborative pianist vs. accompanist, entering the profession, learning the skillset, and the growing respect towards collaborative pianists are all discussed, and the recorded performances are fabulous. 

I love this quote:

This movement, a global movement, has come to reframe the work that we do. As pianists working in ensembles, working with singers and instrumentalists and chamber groups. Our skills have to be wider and more honed even than that of the solo pianist.
