Resumo do projeto

Ebony and ivory: History of piano in Portugal from the second half of 18th century to the 21st century”

 

Despite the representative presence of the piano in Portugal from the second half of the 18th century and the extensive presence of piano makers in the early years of the instrument, the study of its history and related practices is largely neglected in the Portuguese context: organological studies ignore a representative number of non-Portuguese manufacturing pianos; and related social context and artistic practices are only approached in a study circumscribed to the context of Madeira island. This project will thus focus on the history of piano in Portugal from the second half of 18th century to the 21st century in order to:

  • Contribute to an integrated research outlook of its history, organological aspects, social contexts and artistic practices;
  • Identify current site-specific artistic and social related practices;
  • Promote performative practices through ethnographic approaches; and
  • Contribute to the study, preservation and dissemination of Portuguese music-cultural heritage, specifically in regard to its organological, social and artistic aspects.

Research will address two perspectives through the application of methods such as archival work, organological analysis and ethnographical participative approaches: a historical perspective will study social contexts, instruments and artistic practices; and an ethnographic perspective will study current site-specific contexts and practices related to piano. Additionally, ethnography will be used as a reflexive methodology for performative tasks in interaction with objects gathered through ‘archeological’ approach (Foucault 1969/2002).
