Tom Beghin tells a historically accurate and artistically fascinating story about Beethovens keyboard instruments. In words and music, he explains how Beethoven, with his lifelong experience of the Viennese fortepiano, was inspired twice by exotic pianos: an 1803 Érard and an 1817 Broadwood. Allow yourself to be convinced by a passionate pianist and researcher with three replicas expertly constructed by Chris Maene. This lecture recital is part of the research project Beethoven and his Foreign Pianos that Tom Beghin is engaged in at the Orpheus Institute in Ghent.
The lecture-perfomance is in Dutch.
