DEBUSSY AS EARLY MUSIC—colloquy led by Nicholas Mathew (UC Berkeley)

The Westfield Center for Historical Keyboard Studies, in partnership with the San Francisco Early Music Society’s 2018 Berkeley Festival and Exhibition, sponsor a colloquy led by Nicholas Mathew (UC Berkeley) entitled Debussy as Early Music, which will feature two important performer-scholars long associated, in evolving ways, with the early music movement, George Barth (Stanford University) and Kate van Orden (Harvard).

ALEXEI LUBIMOV, In Recital

In the afternoon, the world-renowned pianist and historical keyboard specialist Alexei Lubimov will present a recital of Debussy’s piano music on the beautiful 1913 Bechstein piano owned by Berkeley’s venerable Piano Club. Lubimov’s career has encompassed harpsichord and modern piano, as well as award-winning performances of Mozart, Schubert, and Brahms on Viennese pianos, Chopin on French pianos, and C. P. E. Bach on the now obscure tangent piano. ECM New Music released his recording of Debussy’s Preludes, on a Steinway from 1913, in 2012.
