    Keyboard Mini-Festival

    Part One, 9am-11am: The Fortepiano KRISTIAN BEZUIDENHOUT & ANDREW WILLIS

    Internationally-acclaimed fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout evaluates the changes in Haydn's keyboard writing and notation, especially the composer's ever-increasing specificity regarding dynamics, and more. Following this, Andrew Willis (University of North Carolina Greensboro) will perform solo keyboard concertos by J. S. Bach on a Ferrini fortepiano, ca. 1732, by David Sutherland, with colleagues Elizabeth Field and Gesa Kordes, violin; Stephanie Vial,  cello; and Nina Falk, viola.

    Part Two, 11:30am-1:30pm: The Harpsichord LUCA GUGLIELMI & WILLIAM PORTER

    This session will include a suite from Fischer's Musicalischer Parnassus, as well as a Bach Partita, performed by William Porter (Eastman School of Music) followed by a performance by Luca Guglielmi (Ensembles Ricercar and Zefiro), to include works of J. S. Bach, Scarlatti, C. P. E. Bach, Platti, Haydn, and Luchesi.

    Part Three, 2pm-4pm: The Clavichord PETER SYKES & DAVID BREITMAN

    Long heralded as the most expressive of the early keyboard instruments, the clavichord remains the favored instrument of the most discriminating musical tastes, and the most challenging and potentially rewarding for the player. David Breitman (Oberlin Conservatory of Music) and Peter Sykes (Boston University) will perform music of J. S. and C. P. E. Bach, Haydn, and Beethoven, focusing on the unique expressive power of the kind of musical intimacy that only the clavichord can provide.
