Two articles on the influence of the Technique on piano playing.
Mouritz description: 
Nelly Ben-Or writes: ‘This booklet contains the 1987 Alexander Memorial Lecture in which the author sketches the background of how she as a pianist came to the Technique and the impact it had on her work. The lecture draws conclusions as to which aspects of the Technique are of significant help in preparation for performance. The second article, written in 1978, describes in detail a way of using the Alexander principles in piano playing – directing, memorising music and use in playing.’
