Artistic Temperaments: Listening, Measuring And Modelling
SATURDAY 10 FEBRUARY - 11:00 AM
A Journey into Piano Acoustics with Dr. Giacomo Squicciarini
Dr. Squicciarini’s first encounters with piano acoustics were through Paulo Fazioli, founder of the famous new piano company. One of his most memorable experiments at Turner Sims was the blind comparison of pianos by Fazioli, Steinway and Mason&Hamlin, which yielded most unexpected results! He is now engaged on a computer modelling process which may give a voice to unplayable historic instruments, opening up the world of past sounds.
