THE KEYBOARD VIRTUOSO: Four Centuries of Showmanship

All Day, Feb 7, 2020

Mark Kroll
The keyboard virtuoso appeared on the scene almost as soon as the keyboard instrument was invented, and why not? With all those keys, pedals and other mechanical devices making it possible to play a gaggle of notes, faster and louder, than just about any other performer, the temptation to show off was irresistible. This course will take us through 400 years of keyboard virtuosity, starting with the harpsichordist Frescobaldi in the 1600s, who used to astonish his friends by playing with his knuckles; visiting Bach in his organ loft (people said he could play better with his feet than most could play with their hands); and listening with awe as two centuries of piano daredevils, from Liszt to Lang Lang, do their stuff.

Cost: $40 – $45
