Musical Instruments Gallery Talk and Demonstration
MFA curator Darcy Kuronen will present a tour of the Museum’s wonderful collection of musical instruments from around the world. Kuronen will present stories about the history and design of selected pieces in the collection, including musical demonstrations of a harpsichord, clavichord, pianoforte, reed organ, zithers, early mouth organs, and flageolet flutes. For the grand finale he will perform a piece on the MFA’s musical glasses made in Baltimore in the 1830s.
This program is dedicated to the memory of Stephen Korbet.
