Book Launch: “Off The Record: Performing Practices in Romantic Piano Playing” by Neal Peres da Costa

Location: Recital Hall East and Atrium, Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Macquarie Street, Sydney AU 

“Some of us have very, very busy recently (in fact, for the past few years)...Neal, our wonderful keyboard specialist - harpsichord, fortepiano, historic pianoforte - has a very special event coming up soon that we would like to tell you all about. We hope you may be able to come along, hear all about his new book, and hear Neal with Ironwood putting some of the book into practice with a bit of Brahms. This is the book, the research & the musician that is informing Ironwood's performances in music of the mid-late 19th century German repertoire. A very special & historic - maybe even hip - evening... “
