EmulatiNg physical Gestures of nineteenth-century SpanisH pianisTs: restorINg knowledGe And Lost PracticEs

Nightingale transforms the traditional approach to historically informed performance (HIP), developing and implementing a new methodology that embodies the evidence in practice with the assistance of historical instruments and digital technologies. Symbolically evocating the expressivity of the bird's song, this project is the first-ever performance-based study of 19th-century Spanish pianists, whose interpretations, still unrecognized, expose noticeable stylistic divergences with modern interpretations.
