Professor Puchhammer-Sédillot's lecture will present her research on the test pieces composed for the Paris Conservatory between 1896 and 1938, including Enescu's well-known Concertpiece. Her research led to both a printed, collected edition and recordings of the repertoire.

Lunch will not be provided, but there are numerous dining options in the immediate area.

We hope that you will be able to join us! If you are a private teacher, we also hope you can share this with your students.

Special thanks to Prof. Erika Eckert and University of Colorado for underwriting support of Puchhammer-Sédillot's visit.
