Clavichord

Preludes and Fugues by Bach together with works by Byrd, Froberger, Scarlatti, Dodgson and Howells.

For our first visit to this lovely late 16th-century mansion near Pencaitland Julian Perkins, one of Britain’s leading baroque keyboard players, introduces that most intimate of instruments, the clavichord. His fascinatingly varied programme ranges from the Elizabethan period to JS Bach (who is said to have loved the clavichord) and, in the middle, some beautiful 20th-century pieces by Herbert Howells and Stephen Dodgson.

'Effortless virtuosity ... Julian Perkins gives performances that reach to the heart of the music.'
