The Department of Music presents the fifth annual concert featuring the Department’s 1843 Pleyel piano. Donated to the Department by Tom Kenan, the restored Pleyel was purchased directly from the Pleyel piano-manufacturing company in Paris. Pleyel’s instruments were favorites of Frédéric Chopin and many of his nineteenth-century contemporaries, and reflect a touch and sound quite different from the modern grand piano. The concert will feature UNC faculty and students in performances of works hailing from the era of this historic instrument.
