DUE TO ILLNESS today's Public Research Seminar is postponed. More information to follow.

There is a gap in music performance, education and psychology in terms of memorisation training for post-tonal piano music. Although the repertoire spans over 100 years, pedagogues and professionals still lack effective tools for developing this skill. In this seminar, Laura Farré Rozada presents memorisation strategies for this repertoire, drawing on some of the main findings from a series of studies with several pianists (including herself), carried out during her PhD.

Laura Farré Rozada is a pianist and mathematician, deemed a 'Rising Star' by BBC Music Magazine, and a Midlands4Cities-funded PhD candidate at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. She has released two award-winning albums and has performed across Europe and North America. Laura has worked with George Crumb, Brian Ferneyhough, Michael Finnissy and Rebecca Saunders; and has given over 50 premieres of works by Philippe Manoury, David Lang, George Lewis, Dai Fujikura, Anna Thorvaldsdóttir, Unsuk Chin, Thierry Escaich, Ofer Ben-Amots and Tyshawn Sorey, among others.
