This chapter analyses the Romantic obsession with a cantabile “singing tone” on the piano, with particular reference to techniques of pedaling, arpeggiation, and asynchronization of hands. The attitudes of Chopin, Liszt, Leschetizky, Paderewski, Busoni, and Grainger to the topic are discussed in detail.

Keywords:   singing tone, pedaling, arpeggation, asynchronization, Leschetizky, Paderewski
