Have you ever wondered what Beethoven heard when he played Moonlight Sonata for the first time?   Did you know that early pianos were designed to match the women's fashion of their era?  Can you identify the middle pedal?  These questions and more will be the topic of a very special series of National Piano Month workshops. 
Laurence Libin, Former Curator of Instruments for the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, will be your guide as you explore the fascinating history IN PICTURES of the piano and its incredible role in shaping the music of today.  You'll hear rare recordings of pianos built in the Beethoven era and earlier.  You'll learn why pianos have 88 keys, 3 pedals, and their iconic curved shape.  You'll even witness a captivating multi-media presentation - exposing you to the sights and sounds of pianos around the World!  Don't miss this rare opportunity to explore the art, the history, and the culture surrounding the piano in a way ONLY Laurence Libin can show you. 
The first workshop (Monday, August 27 at 7pm) will take place at Gist Piano Center in Louisville.  The second (Tuesday, August 28 at 6pm) will be held in the Lexington Gist Piano Center showroom.  Admission for both events is $5.00 per person (PIE teachers, students and families get in FREE).  For info, call James at (502) 451-1831.
