‘Playing Bach’

February 24 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm



24th February, 11:30am and 2:30pm

in association with the European Piano Teachers’ Association (EPTA Belfast) with Malcom Proud, Professor Yo Tomita and David Stevens.

This event will explore the performance-practice issues in the keyboard music of J. S. Bach with reference to performance on piano, harpsichord and chamber organ. It will include a presentation on compositional processes by the distinguished Bach scholar Yo Tomita. Consideration will then be given to approaches to performance on the different instruments, focusing on the Fugue in E major from The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 2. A clavichord will also be made available. The morning session will conclude with a round table in which the panel will address questions/topics raised by members of the USOC and EPTA.

The afternoon session will be devoted to a workshop for pianists and organists and this will be conducted by Malcolm Proud, known internationally as a harpsichordist and organist.

Please not that questions/topics for the round table should be submitted by 10th February to either Michael Tregenna, Hon Secretary USOC, at michaeltregenna@icloud.com or John McParland, EPTA Belfast, at john.mcparland@ntlworld.com
