Musicologist Dr. Jeffrey Langford with pianist Dr. Joanne Polk at the 1783 Stein Viennese Pianoforte from the Steven E. Greenstein collection, will show that what we know today as musical notation needs to be “deciphered” by today’s pianists when it comes to music from the 18th century.
An important part of this lecture is the opportunity audiences will have to hear this music played on an instrument that is considerably different from a modern concert grand and to consider how this older instrument might have impacted composing and performance.
