reactions to the record

Jeff of Riding East mentioned an amazing symposium sponsored by the Stanford Music Department. Reactions to the Record starts tomorrow and it features very talented musicians from around the world. Of most interest to me are the 8pm concerts tomorrow and Friday nights, and the Saturday morning class with the gifted and generous St.Lawrence String Quartet. More details below:

REACTIONS TO THE RECORD:


Perspectives on Historic Performance


April 19-21, 2007

The Stanford Department of Music is hosting a three-day symposium to explore the vivid styles of performance heard on the earliest acoustic recordings and player piano rolls, styles that began to vanish with the First World War and were considered almost scandalous after the Second. This will be a forum for experiment and dialogue, and the focus will be practical: what might these traces of vintage styles mean to performers, composers and listeners today.

Paul, thanks for the post on the music symposium. Today's event was exceptional. I particularly liked the evening concert (one more scheduled for tomorrow), as well as the performance on the yamaha diskclavier of a synthesis of brahms performing his Hungarian Dance.

Jeff
