Bespoke for Broadwood

David Owen Norris, 1828 Broadwood Grand Pianoforte

Thursday 17th October 2019

7:30 pm

Cambridge Early Music presents an intimate evening with David Owen Norris playing on his 1828 Broadwood Grand Pianoforte Mendelssohn’s Sonata in E Op. 6 and Rondo Caprichoso along with Sterndale’s Sonata Op. 46.

For the first thirty years or so of the nineteenth century, Broadwoods sawed their wooden sustaining pedals in two, the right-hand half raising the dampers from middle C up, and the left-hand half raising the dampers from middle B down. Mendelssohn and Sterndale Bennett were just two of many composers who took advantage of this potent device.

David Owen Norris’s Broadwood pianoforte displays all these devices to perfection.

This performance is part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas www.festivalofideas.cam.ac.uk
