In continuation of his appearance at the Hong Kong Arts Festival concert, Chinese pianist and early music specialist Yuan Sheng will make further appearances in a solo recital and a lecture demonstration as part of our PLUS programme.
After its invention in the 18th century, the piano has undergone drastic changes in terms of manufacturing technology and timbre. Sheng will be playing an 1862 Bechstein antique piano as well as a modern grand piano in this lecture demonstration. The differences between antique and modern instruments will be presented and demonstrated.
Sheng will give a lecture demonstration before the recital. Please refer to the details of the programme here.
