• Linda Nicholson (On a reproduction of a 1730 Cristofori-Ferrini pianoforte)

• Performing on a copy of a 1730 Cristofori-Ferrini Pianoforte Linda Nicholson demonstrates the qualities of these earliest of pianofortes. The repertoire, sonatas from Platti, Paradisi et al., all composed between1720-1754, is perfect for this instrument, whose sound is much closer to the harpsichord than the later pianofortes, despite its dynamic abilities. Linda Nicholson is one of the foremost keyboard players specialising in the performance of baroque, classical and early romantic music on instruments of the period. After studying at London University (B.Mus.) and the Royal College of Music (piano with Kendall Taylor, harpsichord with Ruth Dyson) she won the first two international competitions held for the fortepiano, namely the Concours International du Pianoforte in Paris and the Festival of Flanders Competition in Bruges.
