Justin Taylor - « Des sautereaux aux petits marteaux »

03/10/2017 - 03/10/2017

The young French musician Justin Taylor ran away with all the awards at the International Musica Antiqua Competition for harpsichord in 2015. It may be something of a surprise that he is equally at home on the pianoforte. He has devised a programme for BOZAR – “From the Jack to the Hammer” –  in which he shows how, in the 18th century, the long-established harpsichord slowly but surely made way for the pianoforte, an instrument which, in its day, was technically superior and more sonorous, and therefore much more interesting to composers.
