The Academy of Fortepiano Performance International Fortepiano Salon #7 features highlights from the August 24-29, 2021 summer workshop at the Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Piano Performance Museum in Hunter, New York.

The Academy of Fortepiano Performance opened with a concert on August 24 at the Doctorow Center for the Arts by the cofounders Audrey Axinn, Maria Rose, and Yi-heng Yang playing works by Beethoven, Dussek, and Schumann. During the week, young professionals immersed themselves in master classes, lessons, and recording opportunities on fortepianos from the 18th and 19th centuries. Pianos available during the residency included some of the museum’s valuable original instruments, such as the Clementi square piano (1803), the recently-acquired Conrad Graf piano (1826), two Broadwood grand pianos (mid 19th c.), a Pleyel pianino (1840) and a grand piano by Erard Frères (1873), as well as replicas of Anton Walter pianos (1780s-90s).

The Academy culminated in a final concert by Isaac Foreman, Patricia Garcia Gill, Hilda Huang, Julian Jenson, Robin Morace, Stephanie Schmidt, Piaowen Tian, Angie Zhang, and Fengming Zhang, performing works by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Mozart, and Viardot.

Salon #7 of the International Salon Series will show excerpts from the concerts and some of the lecture-recitals by participants. Audrey Axinn, Maria Rose, and Yi-heng Yang, as well as some of the participants, will describe their experiences and the importance of playing and performing on these instruments, using images and photos of special moments during the workshop. Salon #7’s spectacular highlights memorialize a special time of fortepiano study in the Catskill Mountains.

@ 8:00pm

Doctorow Center for the Arts
7971
Main Street, Village of Hunter

Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Academy of Fortepiano Performance cofounders Audrey Axinn, Maria Rose, and Yi-heng Yang will perform live at the Doctorow Center for the Arts on Saturday, November 6, 2021, playing works by Beethoven, Dussek, and Schumann. This performance will be one of the few live performances presented by Catskill Mountain Foundation this year, as audiences venture out once again to experience the sights and sounds of live music.

Axinn will perform Beethoven Bagatelles, Opus 33, on the Conrad Graf piano (1826). Rose will perform Sonata op. 61 by Jan Ladislav Dussek, also called “Élégie harmonique”, on the Broadwood grand piano (mid 19th c.). Yang will perform Novellettes op. 21 by Robert Schumann on the 1826 Graf piano. The recently-acquired Graf piano is part of the Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Piano Performance Museum collection of valuable original instruments, which also includes the Clementi square piano (1803, a Pleyel pianino (1840) and a grand piano by Erard Frères (1873).

“Somehow that opening of heart-felt suffering in ‘Élégie Harmonique’ seems very appropriate at this time of loss, anxiety, and uncertainty after a year-and-a half of dealing with the Covid pandemic, comparable to the experience of people during wartime.“ -- Maria Rose, Academy of Fortepiano Performance cofounder

With the Academy of Fortepiano Performance summer workshop over, Axinn, Rose and Yang have returned to their academic and professional worlds, while they commit to recording opportunities and look forward to next summer’s workshop. Ms. Rose and Ms. Yang will continue to organize Academy of Fortepiano Performance International Fortepiano Salons, bringing live-streamed panel discussions and excerpts of performances to a growing audience of participants from all around the world.
