Artem Belogurov, Piano Recital and Lecture-Demonstration performed on a replica of one of the earliest pianos in history (1700) to take place Saturday, April 1, 2023, 4:00 p.m. at Beacon Hill Music Hall, Stroudsburg, PA.
Artem Belogurov studied Piano Performance at the New England Conservatory of Music and presently teaches fortepiano at Utrecht Conservatory, Netherlands. In this concert he will play on a replica of what was probably the first “true piano,” designed and built by Bartolomeo Cristofori of Padua in 1700. Three original Cristofori pianos survive, one of them in the Metropolitan Museum in NYC.
Artem will demonstrate the piano’s capabilities with selections from 18th century composers who wrote and/or played music specifically for this instrument, including Ludovico Giustini—the first to write and publish music for the piano—Handel, J.S. Bach, Scarlatti, and others, all of whom played some part in ushering in this new instrument that would change the course of Western music.
