‘Heaven and Earth in Little Space’: Christmas Music for Clavichord. Recital by Adrian Lenthall

Dandrieu, Bartók and Geoffrey Allan Taylor. This repertoire ranges very widely in terms of history, geography and style, as well as in mood and emotional level, but has at its core a take on the celebration of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany which is grounded and centred by the intimate sound of the clavichord. The ‘title track’, a specially made intabulation of the medieval carol There is no rose, can be heard on www.adrianlenthall.co.uk/audio.
Tickets £15 (to include a glass of mulled wine), under 18s £5, from Revd. Nicola Lenthall, tel. 01582 872223 or email revnicolalenthall@btinternet.com

6.15pm Britten Theatre, Royal College of Music, Prince Consort Road, London SW7 2BS

Professor Terence Charlston, Chair of Historical Keyboard Instruments. Curating Counterpoint, the lyrical imagination and the performance of Johann Jacob Froberger’s legacy.

The performance of counterpoint has always fascinated keyboard players, and the seventeenth-century virtuoso J. J. Froberger appears to have shared this enthusiasm. His remarkable fugues combine arcane method and melodic invention in a very original manner. This inaugural professorial lecture investigated Froberger’s fugal technique and considered the preservation of counterpoint in items from the RCM Collections. Musical examples were played on the bentside spinet by Stephen Keene, London c. 1685 (RCM 179) and on the RCM’s clavichord by Derek Adlam after C. G. Hubert (1771).
