APSU Presents Historical Recreation of Schubert Composition

 

The fortepiano, a small, 18th century precursor to the modern day piano, isn’t used much anymore. The antiquated instrument with its black keys produces a little softer, a little different sound than what 21st century audiences are accustomed to hearing.
