Acclaimed scholar and performer Neal Peres Da Costa delves into the extraordinary musical ideas of Mozart. He reveals new perspectives
on the music of eighteenth-century Europe, and the ways in which it was imagined, performed and understood, and explores the intricate relationships
between music, place and time.
Neal Peres Da Costa is Professor of Historical Performance and Program Leader of Postgraduate Research at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (University of Sydney). Widely recognised as a historical keyboard performing scholar he has produced ground breaking research in his monograph Off the Record: Performing Practices in Romantic Piano Playing (Oxford University Press, New York: 2012) and the Bärenreiter edition (2015/16) of Brahms’ Sonatas for a single instrument and piano. He is the recipient of a prestigious Australian Research Council Discovery project grant (2017-19) for research into 19th-century piano playing.
