Inja Stanovic, University of Huddersfield
Victoria's Room, Victoria Rooms
This lecture-recital introduces Leverhulme-funded research project “(Re)constructing Early Recordings: a guide for historically-informed performance”, which focusses on the reconstruction and simulation of the mechanical recording process to capture performances using wax cylinders and digital technologies.
Through the presentation of research findings, this lecture-recital discusses the value of reconstructions of passed recording techniques, in terms of preserving forms of performance practice, and proposes a method for their future analysis and use. The presented repertoire includes works of Chopin, Godard, F. Mendelssohn and Arensky.
