The Clas­si­cal Clavi­chord, in memo­ri­am Christo­pher Hog­wood, CBE
At the time of Christo­pher Hogwood’s death three years ago he was work­ing on The Clas­si­cal Clavi­chord, a book about the hey­day of the clavi­chord in the ear­ly clas­si­cal peri­od.
Fea­tur­ing music by W.A. Mozart, W.F. Bach, G.A. Ben­da, & C.P.E. Bach, this recital cel­e­brates the instru­ment that remains hid­den from his­to­ry by the ambigu­ous terms “clavier”, “cem­balo” and “clavecin” con­fus­ing the harp­si­chord, the ear­ly piano and the clavi­chord which, as Hog­wood showed, was the composer’s instru­ment of choice.
Neil Cole­man plays a Pan­ta­le­on Clavi­chord by Ambro­sius Pfaff, the only mod­ern copy of such an instru­ment, mod­eled on an instru­ment from Nor­way attrib­ut­ed to Friederi­ci. The dul­cimer vir­tu­oso Pan­ta­le­on Heben­stre­it was the high­est paid court musi­cian at the time of Bach and Tele­mann. The undamped sound of his play­ing became immense­ly pop­u­lar, and was soon trans­ferred to fortepi­anos and clavi­chords by incor­po­rat­ing a Pantal(e)on mech­a­nism, which was the fore­run­ner of the piano’s sus­tain­ing ped­al.
Doors open 6.30pm. Vol­un­tary dona­tions for post-con­cert drinks.
Tick­ets: £12 (con­ces­sions £6) from Schott Music 0207 534 0710.
