Coming soon: London International Piano Symposium
2 January 2013
A trio of three-day piano conferences
will begin in February, hosted by London International Piano Symposium (LIPS),
founded by Cristine MacKie, and held in association with Steinway & Sons. IP is the Symposium's media partner.
The event welcomes everyone interested in the performance of piano music: artists, scientists, academics, teachers and fans. The symposia will provide an opportunity to hear papers, lecture recitals and debates on the art and science of piano performance by distinguished researchers and practitioners.
During the first The LIPS Conference, which takes
place 8-10 February at London’s Royal College of Music, leading researchers and
practitioners will examine interdisciplinary, evidence-based directives to
enhance modern piano performance practice, assess research into inspirational
performers and teachers past and present, and present scientific models of
performance that will reflect recent developments in performance science,
including neuroscience, the human movement sciences, psychology and physiology.
