Haydn in London
Classical Sonatas on an Original 1806 Fortepiano




One of North America’s leading exponents of the fortepiano, Sylvia Berry makes her Pittsburgh debut with sonatas by Haydn and Clementi, and Beethoven’s Variations on “God Save the King,” performed on an original John Broadwood & Son fortepiano. For a time, Haydn lived down the street from the Broadwood fortepiano shop, and even used one of the shop’s rooms for composing.


The historical instrument was made in London in 1806 and was featured in Ernest Closson’s 1944 book History of the Piano. In 2007, it was acquired in Philadelphia by Dale Munschy, Ms. Berry’s husband, who restored it in 2011 in Somerville, Massachusetts.
