Bard College Conservatory of Music presents

Visiting Artist: Malcolm Bilson, fortepiano


Friday, September 20, 2013

Malcolm Bilson (Bard '57) has been in the forefront of the period-instrument movement for more than thirty years. A member of the Cornell University Music Department since 1968, where he is the Frederick J. Whiton Professor of Music, he began his pioneering activity in the early 1970s as a performer of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert on late 18th- and early 19th-century pianos. Since then he has proven to be a key contributor to the restoration of the fortepiano to the concert stage and to fresh recordings of the "mainstream" repertory.

Free and open to the public.
