MUS335 Lecture 3
-In the news: Stephen Harper playing piano (Youtube it), White House dinner with
Herbie Hancock.
-Piano is a bridge of cultures but it’s more complex than just that.
-Gendering and socializing force of Piano (last week’s topic):
oPiano is a socializing force, particularly in England where it relates to
education
oCourting at the keyboard (men showing their skill, playing together
-Piano originally women’s instrument
-Men rarely used to understand music as a performing art
oUnderstood science behind it as well as composition.
-Clavichord (smaller and quieter than the piano)
o3 octave keyboard
oPlayed it in private primarily, and in intimate engagements
oDomestic instrument
oInstrument that men used for skill acquisition
oPlayed for other men explaining musical concepts
oOriginally never really played for other women, maybe only closest
friends
oSkills were crucial for learning about the piano
-Around 1800 we see about two strands of keyboard:
oWomen: sweet music Feminine and subtle
oMozart: dazzling virtuosic skill masculine
Inanimate object now being mastered (considered more manly)
-Around the beginning of the 19th century we see more men playing the piano
