We seek to rediscover the art of the piano as the composer heard it on the instruments of the time;  to collect and study the instruments themselves, conserving many for history, and performing on many, so we might rediscover history’s magic.  We exhibit and curate instruments, tell the great stories of piano and society, and study the history of the piano, its technology and its builders.

The period piano is best heard live.In order to best appreciate a recording, use high quality audio - at least a good pair of headphones or quality external speakers, combined with a quiet atmosphere.

On this video the Rameau starts at exactly 6 minutes, and the Ravel at 27:45 minutes.

Recording was with only a Zoom video camera with x/y fixed mics on the camera;  placed 6 feet above the floor, 20 feet from the stage.
