CU Music, Fugitive Resonance Festival: Debussy the Romantic

Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 11:00am to 2:00pm

Barnes Hall, Auditorium
129 Ho Plaza Cornell University: Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

“Fugitive Resonance: The Piano in the Early Twentieth Century” — a festival featuring a selection of the Cornell Center for Historical Keyboards' instruments: the Blüthner Aliquot grand from 1878 and 1908 Kovner Steinway.

Jocelyn Ho (UCLA) will present a lecture-recital that draws on the piano rolls made by Debussy in 1912 to claim that Debussy’s pianism was firmly grounded in the tradition of Chopin and Liszt. Discussion to follow.

An internationally-acclaimed pianist, historical keyboardist, theorist, and composer, Jocelyn Ho engages practice and scholarship in a dialogic process to challenge and enliven contemporary concert practices. Her performance interests center on the two ends of the spectrum: new music and historically informed performance practice. Her scholarship includes research in embodied cognition and gestures, and the performance practice of Haydn and Debussy.
