UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Research Seminar Series : David Kim Other events...
Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

In light of the recent developments around international visitors arriving in Australia, we have taken the sad decision to cancel David Kim’s activities at the Conservatorium this week.

We will continue to monitor the Department of Health alerts and provide any important updates around other events as soon as they are available.


The Conservatorium of Music is a vibrant centre for research in music and music education, where a thriving community of scholars is engaged in exploring the frontiers of knowledge, working on a wide range of research projects with diverse outputs.

Our free weekly seminar series showcases presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.

David Kim | Beethoven on Historical Instruments: Case Studies in Interpretation

“Historically-Informed Performance” is mostly obviously characterized by its use of historical instruments, and HIP players are instantly recognizable by their hardware: fortepianos rather than modern Steinways, gut rather than metal strings, etc. While musical hardware is inarguably central to HIP’s project, the consequences of HIP-based thinking reach far beyond instruments. Taking Beethoven’s 250th as our cue, we will use case studies from Beethoven’s compositions to illustrate that technology is inextricably interwoven with musical style and can even shed new light on familiar compositions. Perhaps more importantly, these case studies will also be used to offer freeing interpretive possibilities, and even fresh perspectives on what it means to be a musician.

Bio – David Hyun-su Kim is a concert pianist specializing in historical performance, holds degrees from Harvard, Yale, and Cornell Universities, a Doctorate from the New England Conservatory, and serves as Associate Professor of music at Whitman College.

In celebration of Beethoven’s 250th, he will be performing an all-Beethoven program on Thursday, March 19th at 7:30. Further details https://www.trybooking.comBHVTJ
