Paper dr. Anna Scott discussed in one-day conference on Pianism in the Long Nineteenth Century, featuring scholarship and interviews from across the globe.
This virtual conference on March 4, 2021, brings together the expertise of performers, researchers, and pedagogues, and attempts to answer why the late nineteenth century was such a flourishing time in the history of pianism. While there are many texts that investigate individual elements of pianism, there are few that invest all the changing aspects of pianism. This day attempts to bring scholars together with the immense knowledge of performers and pedagogues. By inviting various experts to discuss pianism during the late nineteenth century, the conference aims to unite scholars, performers and teachers under the umbrella of ‘research’ and create space for further interdisciplinary investigation into this topic.
The conference will feature papers from:
– Professor Natasha Loges (Royal College of Music),
– Professor Neal Peres Da Costa (Sydney Conservatorium of Music, University of Sydney),
– Dr Anna Scott (Leiden University),
– Professor Dana Gooley (Brown University),
And interviews with distinguished pianists:
– Professor Vanessa Latarche (Royal College of Music),
– Danny Driver, and
– Stephen Hough.
Further names will be announced soon!
Papers and interviews will be available to delegates online a week prior online, with the event culminating in a Live Q&A on 4th March, 4PM British Standard Time/ 5PM CET
This event is hosted and supported by the Royal College of Music, and generously supported by the Royal Musical Association.
