Classical music performances have been recorded and thus preserved for over a hundred years. This course will trawl the recorded archives to discover how performance styles have changed over that time. We will include great players of the early 20th century, and the recent “authentic performance” movement. We will also discover composers playing their own works eg Elgar conducting Enigma Variations, Rachmaninov playing his own concertos.
