Women and the Piano
Lecture and Recital

Since its early development, keyboard instruments were intricately linked with the roles and social status of women. The prominent position women played in the development of the piano--as pianist, muse, or patron--tends to be overlooked. This two-part concert will focus on relationship between women and the piano. The first part of the program will be a performance of works inspired by women; the second half will be a discussion on the social history of women and the piano from the 1600s to the days of the early recording artists.
