Visit to the piano Clementi & Co. at the Masia d’en Cabanyes
Date: May 18 at 12:00
In charge of: Marina Rodríguez Brià, of the Muzio Clementi Association of Barcelona.
Marina Rodríguez Brià, pianist and expert on Muzio Clementi, will offer us this thematic visit on the Clementi & Co. cabinet piano that can be found in La Masia d’en Cabanyes.
Clementi, as well as being a musician, was one of the most prestigious piano manufacturers of the moment. One of the particularities of this instrument is that we know the origin of the purchase, made directly in London by Josep Anton de Cabanyes in 1820. The fact that it arrived in Vilanova and did not change its owners, has to do with its excellent state of conservation . Two hundred years later, it allows us to establish a very unique story connecting history and music.
