Pierre Goy returns from Switzerland for his second concert at the Doctorow Center. He will be joined by some of the young artists who are attending the Academy of Fortepiano Performance workshop.
Mr. Goy has become known as one of the most versatile and thoughtful performers on historical instruments. Having studied with prominent European teachers, including Fausto Zadra, Esther Yellin, and Vlado Perlemuter, he is equally at home playing Romantic virtuoso repertoire as 18th century music for the harpsichord and clavichord. His discography includes piano music by Chopin, Liszt, and Mozart, as well as harpsichord music by A.L. Couperin. Pierre Goy is the creator of the Rencontres Internationales Harmoniques which has brought together instrument makers, musicians, musicologists and museum curators around historic instruments every two years since 2002.
Pierre Goy teaches piano at the Conservatory of Vevey and at the Conservatory of Lausanne, where he also shares his passion for early music by organizing seminars on ancient instruments. At the Haute Ecole de Musique de Geneve, he teaches clavichord and pianoforte in the Department of Early Music.
The Doctorow Center offers amazing performances all year-round from live music and music education programs, movie showings, live music, puppetry, theater, and more!
