ULSTER SOCIETY OF ORGANISTS AND CHOIRMASTERS in association with EPTA Belfast

with Malcolm Proud, Yo Tomita and David Stevens

This event will explore performance-practice issues in the keyboard music of J. S. Bach with reference to performance on piano, harpsichord and chamber organ.  It will include a presentation on compositional processes by the distinguished Bach scholar, Professor Yo Tomita.  Consideration will then be given to approaches to performance on the different instruments, focusing on the Fugue in E major from The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 2.  A clavichord will also be made available.  The morning session will conclude with a round table in which the panel will address questions/topics raised by members of USOC and EPTA.

The afternoon session will be devoted to a workshop for pianists and organists and this will be conducted by Malcolm Proud, known internationally as a harpsichordist and organist.

Please note that questions/topics for the round table should be submitted by 10th February to either Michael Tregenna, Hon Secretary USOC, at michaeltregenna@icloud.com or John McParland, EPTA Belfast, at john.mcparland@ntlworld.com.
