Jack Campin Reading Lyrics vs Memorization (203* d) RE: Reading Lyrics vs Memorization 01 Jan 21

Maybe relevant comments about sightreading:

John Ogdon

Most classical soloists have an active repertoire of less than 20 concertos, all memorized. Ogdon was the total antithesis of that - he could and did sightread the most complex music imaginable, consistently creating awe-inspiringly spontaneous performances. He could play rings round anybody else at the peak of his career.
