Anton Nel, fortepiano: SOLD OUT

Anton Nel: Fortepiano
  • October 8, 2017 4:00 PM Past

Anton Nel will play a special program of classical repertoire on the fortepiano. The fortepiano was the keyboard classical era composers would have used to compose their works, and the period instrument on which their music would have been played. Modern grand pianos create a much bigger sound than they ever envisioned – by comparison, the fortepiano presents a crispness and clarity that highlights the brilliance of classical keyboard compositions. Nel will play works by Mozart, Haydn, C.P.E. Bach, and Beethoven's famous "Moonlight" Sonata.

Admission: $10–30
