three views of the keyboard


The piano: with its 52 white and 36 black keys, the piano continues to attract many musicians for its wide range and deep musicality. The “Three Views of the Keyboard” project is centred around the piano as an instrument and looks at the history, present, and future of cutting-edge keyboard music using acoustic, prepared, and electronic methods.
This series of concerts follows on from “Feldman meets freq”, which took place in February 2022.
