Romance and Glamour: A 19th-Century Piano Soirée

This concert will feature different pianos, from a late-18th century Viennese piano to French and English pianos from the Romantic era. Works by Frederic Chopin will be performed by Pierre Goy, a specialist in 19th-century performance practice, invoking the intimacy of the Paris salon of Chopin’s time. Also included are works by Mozart, Hélène de Montgeroult and Fanny Mendelssohn.

The concert opens a week-long workshop with masterclasses, lectures, and performances on piano performance practice.

Pierre Goy has become known as a one of the most versatile and thoughtful performers on historical instruments. Having studied with prominent European teachers, including Fausto Zadra, Esther Yellin, and Vlado Perlemuter, he is equally at home playing Romantic virtuoso repertoire as 18th-century music for the harpsichord and clavichord. His discography includes piano music by Chopin, Liszt, and Mozart, as well as harpsichord music by A.L. Couperin.
