“Meet my Piano”

The first International Fortepiano Salon, “Meet My Piano”, on Saturday, January 30th was a great success–more than 80 people joined us from as far away as California, Switzerland, and China. Faculty members Maria Rose and Yi-heng Yang introduced the series and performed brief fortepiano pieces by Haydn and Nicholas Séjan from their home. They also introduced the activities of the Academy of Fortepiano Performance and played an excerpt from their concert on the newly acquired 1826 Graf Piano at the Piano Performance Museum in Hunter, NY. Participants included Matthew Bengtson, Charles Metz in California, and Audrey Vardanega in New York City; playing works by Mozart and Beethoven.

Pierre Goy, guest artist at AFP in 2018, will introduce and explain a project he undertook with his students in Geneva and Lausanne. Based on Ignaz Moscheles’ 1858 edition of Beethoven sonatas, the students will explore their interpretation on three different 19th-century pianos (1820, 1866, 1898) and discuss how the pianos offered different insights into the music and how their interpretation changed with the different instruments. English subtitles will be added.
