The piano of today sounds markedly different than the instrument that was known to Mozart and Beethoven. Many technological changes to the instrument occurred from the piano’s wide acceptance in the 1760’s through its last big changes in design a century later.

Patricia Garcia Gil is one of the fastest rising experts worldwide in what is today called the “fortepiano”, which refers to piano designs prior to the fully evolved piano of the 1870’s. Born in Spain, educated in England, and now living in Italy, this extraordinary artist is in the US to perform at two important keyboard conferences. She’s a passionate advocate for recapturing the original musical inspirations of Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and other composers.

She will perform on a replica of Beethoven’s favorite instrument, an 1805 Walter and Sohn fortepiano, courtesy of UNT. This rare replica is made by Paul McNulty, recognized as the most important maker of historical fortepiano replicas in the world.
