The focus on the original instruments - as far as the historical piano
The focus on the original instruments - as far as the historical piano is concerned - is born out of curiosity, out of passion. Curiosity about a different timbre that does not exceed that of the modern instrument, but multiplies its possibilities precisely because of its organological structure. Curiosity to think about what and how the first listeners heard when they enjoyed certain compositions. Curiosity to understand what has changed, and how, in the physical approach to the instrument. All this becomes passion when we understand the absolute and indissoluble need between composition and instrument. Writing conceived for that instrument, not deriving from the general similarity of modern instruments, but with characters, codes, styles typical of that cultural capital, that kingdom, that region... The historical piano is not ancient. It places Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert at the forefront. It captures the innovative undertaking that every major composition entails, and which constitutes the essential reason for its composer's work.
