Used throughout the Baroque and Classical eras as a private tool for composing, practice and meditation, the clavichord remained in regular use into the nineteenth century. The last thirty years have witnessed a quiet musical revolution: the clavichord is no longer the Cinderella of the keyboard world. Join the conductor and keyboardist Julian Perkins to share the enchantment of this exquisite instrument, so beloved of the young Handel. This programme includes works by Handel as well as works he may have studied during his youth, such as toccatas and suites by Frescobaldi, Froberger and Pachelbel.
