Forte/Piano: A Festival Celebrating Pianos in History
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
The festival will feature pianos from virtually every epoch of the instrument's history. With repertoires ranging from 18th-century to new music, it will showcase the many opportunities for artistic expression, technical creativity, and musical learning that the multiplicity of instruments old and new offers pianists today.
