Frederick Historic Piano Collection

Thursday, April 19, 2018

Edmund Frederick, a former East Asian history major, harpsichord builder and amateur performer, and Patricia Humphrey Frederick, a specialist in elementary music education, church organist and choir director will talk about their important collection of historic 19th century pianos which is meant to be used, and their upcoming Concert Series. They will be comparing recordings by famous pianists playing typical modern Steinway-type concert pianos, with musicians from their concert series playing the same works on their historic pianos. You will be amazed by teh difference (even without a trained ear)!
