This special concert, “Dueling Clavichords.” Dr. Kevin Birch and Dr. Gregory Crowell will take us on a journey of musical discovery performing keyboard music of the 17th and 18th Centuries on clavichords by Dutch builder Koen Vermeij (1988) after Christian Gottlob Hubert (1784) and German builder Martin Kather (2020) after Praetorius (1621). A favorite instrument of Johann Sebastian Bach, according to his earliest biographer Forkel, that “both for practice and intimate use he regarded the clavichord as the best instrument for study and preferred to express on it his finest feelings.” Birch and Crowell will introduce the program with a description and historical overview of the clavichord.
