An American Fortepiano builder in the Czech Republic:

The Workshop of Paul McNulty and Pianist Viviana Sofronitsky

Paul McNulty settled in Divisov, Czechia, in 1995 following his training in the U.S. and building fortepianos in Amsterdam. He is known as the most prolific modern fortepiano builder and his instruments are found all over the world, where they are universally valued and used in performance by artists of the highest stature. He has built replicas of at least 12 types of historical pianos, dating from 1750 to 1860.

We will visit his workshop and enjoy performances by his wife, Russian pianist Viviana Sofronitsky, on an array of instruments. Viviana has a busy career as performer at concerts and festivals as soloist and in chamber music.
