Memorializing the Masters: Works by Mozart, Hüllmandel, Beethoven and Clara Schumann

The renowned faculty of the Academy of Fortepiano Performance will present a diverse program of music played on historical pianos from the Catskill Mountain Foundation Piano Performance Museum, Steven E. Greenstein collection. The sound world of the 18th and 19th century masters is recreated as the music is performed on the instruments of their time.

Audrey Axinn is a sensitive and vibrant performer on historical pianos and a teacher of historical piano performance at The Juilliard School and Mannes School of Music. She was the associate dean and a member of the team that launched Juilliard's new international branch campus in China.

Maria van Epenhuysen Rose, a native of the Netherlands, is a brilliant performer on historical pianos, covering a wide range of repertoire. She also holds a PhD in musicology from New York University and has published many articles on piano performance practice.

For Andrew Willis, artistry and scholarship go hand in hand. For several decades he has explored the historical development of keyboard instruments and their performance practice while maintaining a commitment to the study, performance, and teaching of the widest possible range of repertoire. A Professor of Music at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Willis teaches piano, fortepiano, and harpsichord performance and leads courses on keyboard literature and performance practice. He has appeared as soloist with such period-instrument chamber orchestras as the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, the Apollo Ensemble, the Magnolia Baroque Festival, and the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society. In 2005, Andrew Willis toured China presenting works of American, Chinese, and Chinese-American composers.
