The aim of this format is both to teach piano scholars through different interpretations and views and to inspire the resulting insights of the audience in the variety of musical scopes for design that are neither right nor wrong and neither good nor bad but express the respective artistic intentions of the pianists.

These aims are achieved through the participation of two piano teachers, who teach two scholars to play the same two pieces of music. The resulting 2 × 2 × 2 = 8 combinations are divided across a two-day program.

This is illustrated by the masterclasses of Paul Badura-Skoda and Menahem Pressler:
