Frequent performances on television

Apart from his performances on the modern piano of a very wide-ranging repertoire ranging from living composers back to the baroque, Kenneth van Barthold is well known for playing period pianos. He has recorded on the oldest piano in working order, a Cristofori in the Leipzig Museum, and his film for BBC television on the history of the piano is in the archives of both the Smithsonian Institute, USA and of the Steinway Piano Company.
