About this event
A talk by Meagan Milatz
This presentation will focus on the idea of "pianist as translator" when performing music from the era of the fortepiano on the piano as we know it today. An overview of the history of the piano will be made, highlighting key differences between fortepianos and modern pianos, with reference to fortepiano recordings so as to better understand the musical language of the instrument. Live "translations" on the modern piano will follow, with the goal of capturing the early piano's expressive qualities from a historically informed perspective.
Meagan Milatz is “a remarkable pianist with a palette of expression that seems limitless” (Montreal Le Devoir). Meagan has appeared as soloist with orchestras across Canada including the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, the Regina Symphony Orchestra, l’Orchestre symphonique de Sherbrooke, and the McGill Symphony Orchestra. Meagan was named by CBC as one of Canada’s “30 hot classical musicians under 30”. She performs regularly with top international musicians, including Andrew Wan, Stefan Dohr, and Matt Haimovitz, among many others.
