Romantic Workshop (Nov 2023) - Online Ticket

25 Nov 2023 @ 10:30 GMT

Saturday 25th November 2023

For 19th century composers, the piano was a musical symbol of the Romantic spirit of individualism and freedom. Much of the music is heroic in character, making significant technical demands on the player.

Romantic works are some of the most beloved in the piano literature and to play them well, the pianist needs a wide dynamic and colour palette, an understanding of advanced pedalling and a fertile imagination.

In this set of workshops, Graham Fitch will demonstrate how to bring music from this period to life and to deliver stylistically appropriate, personal interpretations with confidence.

Sessions & format

Session 1: Introduction (10:30 – 11:15)

Session 2: Rubato, Dynamics and Touch (11:30 – 12:15)

Session 3: Pedalling (12:30 – 13:15)

Session 4: Developing a Personal Interpretation (14:00 – 15:00)

Performance Workshop (15:30 - 17:00) – Three pianists will present works (or part thereof) from the romantic period and work with Graham on aspects such as tempo, interpretation, practice methods and technical challenges.
