Lunchtime Concert: Kenneth Hamilton FREE
Long before the invention of the Steinway, the Erard concert grand ruled the concert halls of Europe. It was Liszt’s favourite piano; and famously admired by Chopin and Mendelssohn. The Barber Institute is home to one of the world’s finest surviving Erards – a beautiful 1850s instrument in top-class playing condition. Pianist and Professor Kenneth Hamilton gives a lively introduction to the instrument, and plays some of the wonderful music written for it.
