Keyboards at St Cecilia's: Two
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Passionate international artist Martyna Kazmierczak has swiftly earned a specialist reputation for historical keyboard performance, mastering instruments from the 16th century through the Viennese klavier to late romantic grand pianos. She has particular affinity with early Viennese action pianos and with English Broadwoods. Today's generous selection of sonatas, fantasies and variations by CPE Bach, Haydn, Mozart and Fasch illustrates the evolution of 18th-century piano repertoire and techniques, charting changes in audience taste. The singing tones of the 1805 Kuhlbors piano from St Cecilia's Hall collections make it the perfect vehicle to complement Martyna's programme.
