Humanitas Visiting Professor in Chamber Music 2011

Professor Alfred Brendel

World-renowned pianist Alfred Brendel is the inaugural Humanitas Visiting Professor in Chamber Music at the University of Cambridge. He will give a series of public lectures at the Faculty of Music, which he will illustrate at the piano. In addition, he will participate in an open rehearsal with the Szymanowski Quartet, who will be performing at West Road Concert Hall subsequently.

Lecture 2: Light and Shade of Interpretation

In his second lecture, Alfred Brendel will first speak about performance in general and then examine various aspects in detail such as sound, articulation, notation, rhythm and character. Performance habits will be assessed as to their relevance to the works, as well as to our present day ears and needs. Alfred Brendel will play a number of musical examples to illustrate the lecture and also excerpts of recordings and projections.
