The HuCPeR 19th Century Salon offers performers chance to explore historical style, expression and ensemble performance practices in 19th century chamber music by working side-by-side with leading international performer-scholars. The event is designed to bring together musicians with an interest in 19th-century Historically-Informed Performance to make new connections, foster a community and explore challenging ideas in a supportive and open environment.

Five days of immersive coaching, workshops, presentations and discussions will be based within the University of Huddersfield’s Creative Arts Building, a state-of-the-art rehearsal and performance facility situated close to Huddersfield town centre. Participants will have access to pianos by Broadwood (1894) and Streicher (1870).

Participants will be placed into chamber groups to explore new approaches to 19th century music-making by playing alongside the course tutors. Alongside a daily keynote presentation by the course staff, each evening will feature a ‘salon’: a space for discussion, readings, spontaneous music-making and sharing of participants’ own research. Free time will be ringfenced for participants to explore new collaborations, read through repertoire, and have individual coaching. There will also be a workshop on routes into research at doctoral and post-doctoral level
