This symposium is for discussing the culture, background, practices and performance traditions of Finnish keyboard music. We aim to engage in dialogue across genre boundaries: the symposium is open to people representing any kinds of music, and by ‘keyboard music’ we mean not just the piano but also the organ, harpsichord, harmonium and rarer keyboard instruments.
