Strange but true: The "piano" familiar to Mozart and Beethoven was not the black behemoth known to concert-goers today. It was actually a different instrument entirely: the fortepiano. Smaller, with a more transparent, crisper sound, the fortepiano -- also known as the straight-strung Viennese piano -- is very infrequently heard today, making it a rare treat for music lovers. Now Kristian Bezuidenhout, declared "the most brilliant of today's fortepiano players" by The Times of London, demonstrates its range and truly remarkable character at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts. See why Bezuidenhout is widely praised for his "extraordinary new ideas about old music" during this special performance from University of Chicago Presents' Classic Concert Series.
