The ever-inquisitive pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar presents “The Long 17th Century: A Cornucopia of Early Keyboard Music.” The title refers to the period from the late 1500s to the early 1700s, an era noted for forward-thinking individuality and invention in all areas of life. This two-and-a-half hour recital surveys a pan-European variety of styles, genres, and techniques, and comprises 36 works, each by a different composer, many not recorded before on a modern piano.
