How have the practices of composition, performance, improvisation, and listening been informed by the piano in its long history? How have the concepts, designs, materials, and sonorous resources of pianos been entwined with musical thought and affect across time and space?
The Westfield Center for Historical Keyboard Studies invites proposals for recitals, talks and innovative presentations from performers, scholars, organologists, builders, and technicians for an international festival to be held at Cornell University on August 5–9, 2015. Proposals may focus on composers, performance traditions, improvisatory methods, and geographical centers of influence. Potential presentation formats include traditional conference papers, lecture-recitals, lecture-demonstrations, and discussion panels.
