PSO Soundtracks: The Piano We Know, and the Mysteries of Mozart’s “Pianos”

September 18, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Like no other instrument, a piano melds the magic of music with the magic of engineering — and the modern piano is bigger and more powerful than the instruments of Mozart’s time. In anticipation of the all-Mozart concerts that will open the Princeton Symphony’s 2019-2020 season, James Barron will look into the mysteries of Mozart’s “pianos” and at how a modern concert grand comes into being at the Steinway & Sons factory in Astoria, Queens, not far from La Guardia Airport. Barron is a New York Times reporter and the author of “Piano: The Making of a Steinway Concert Grand,” which followed one piano from start to finish.

Presented in partnership with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra.
