The Cobbe Collection of Historic Keyboard Instrume

The Cobbe Collection of Historic Keyboard Instrume

Details

Imagine seeing and hearing the actual pianos owned and played by Haydn and Chopin… These are just two examples of the several remarkable instruments you will have the opportunity to experience at The Leeds this year. These unique instruments are part of the Cobbe Collection, the largest group assembled anywhere of tangible and audible links with the musical minds of the past. All are maintained in playing order, allowing us to hear the actual sounds that inspired musicians for centuries.  The Collection is based at Hatchlands in Surrey, and its owner, Alec Cobbe, has carefully selected a group of instruments to bring up for us at The Leeds. Alec Cobbe or broadcaster David Owen-Norris will be your guide.

One-hour guided visits each day at 10.30am, 11.45am, 2.00pm, 3.15pm* and 4.30pm.

Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery [https://library.leeds.ac.uk/info/1901/visit], Brotherton Library.
