Welcome to The Art and Science of Piano Performance: An interdisciplinary symposium for the enhancement of teaching and performance in the twenty-first century.
The first of three, three-day London International Piano Symposiums will be held at the Royal College of Music, London on February 8th, 9th & 10th, 2013. We warmly welcome everyone interested in the performance of piano music: performers, scientists, academics, teachers, young people, and all those who love just to listen. For the first time these symposia will provide an opportunity to hear papers, lecture recitals and debates on the art and science of piano performance by distinguished researchers and practitioners.
A conference, workshops, and a recital will offer a rich experience for the professional and lovers of piano performance alike.
In recent years, ‘performance science’ has created an umbrella under which ideas and research from a wide range of scientific and musical fields are being encouraged to create a more unified approach to musical performance. Thus, the first symposium of its kind will encourage world class performers and scientists to come together to kindle a renaissance in twenty-first century piano performance by examining the skills which underpin piano performance.Join LIPS as a Friend
