Enjoy Haydn and Mozart’s piano works performed as they intended them to be heard — on a period instrument in an intimate setting.
During the Classical era in Vienna, composers expected their keyboard music to entertain relatively small audiences in smaller-scale spaces than today’s large concert halls. And, the era’s pianos (known as fortepianos) are very different from modern Steinways. Watch this video: “What is a Fortepiano”
Fortepianist Daniel Adam Maltz is based in Vienna and studied Historical Performance at the Royal Academy of Music in London and at Vienna’s University for Music and Performing Arts. He performs on historic Viennese fortepianos, utilizing the vast range of tones, colors, and techniques familiar to Classical era composers. Check out his website: https://www.danieladammaltz.com/
