KEYBOARD EVOLUTION


A two-day mini festival!  An immersive exploration of the development of the keyboard instrument from early clavichord to today’s cutting-edge technologies.  Through performances and interactive workshops, discover how the keyboard has evolved over five hundred years.  Experience at first hand the differences between clavichord, harpsichord, early and modern pianos and modern digital keyboards. Hear music that spans the centuries from original C17th works on the instruments they were written for to 1960/70s style versions of J.S. Bach performed on Moog Synthesizers and brand-new music for the mysterious Magnetic Resonator Piano.


To bring this all to life, we welcome to Deal world-renowned performers and leading music academics
