Fortepiano for Piano & Strings

Spring 2023

Taught By: Audrey Axinn

Section: A

CRN: 12009

Credits: 2

This class explores many different aspects of late 18th and early 19th-century style and notation practices of solo piano and string/piano duo repertoire through playing classical repertoire on a reproduction c. 1790 Walter model fortepiano. Playing works by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven and Schubert on a fortepiano leads to strikingly different interpretations of works we feel we already know well. The fortepiano feels and behaves differently than a modern piano, forcing students to think deeply about tempi, phrasing and the grammar of classical-era musical language. The fortepiano will be tuned to A-440 for the ease in the string players in the class. This course is meant to be practical and applicable for students to enhance their understanding of classical-era repertoire as performers and teachers.
