Presentation Abstract

Despite Schroeter’s prominent influence on the development of piano technique and concerto genre, very little is known about him today. My goal is to bring J. S. Schroeter to the attention of a larger audience of pianists and scholars by examining and performing his concertos op. 5, Nos. 1-6, focusing on his compositional style, performance practice issues, and pianistic techniques as illustrated by this set of works. I will also present a critical modern edition with a scholarly preface. His work, especially the keyboard concertos, gives valuable insight into his contributions as a composer and pianist. Furthermore, these concertos can serve as introductory and/or complementary piece to Mozart’s piano concertos.
