Benjamin Alard: The Clavichord Experience



The versatile keyboardist Benjamin Alard will put his flexibility on display in a rare encounter with Wanda Landowska's Challis clavichord.

Dec 01, 2022. From: 08:00 PM to 09:30 PM

This intimate performance will include works that take advantage of the clavichord's special qualities of touch and sound. Although a quieter instrument than the harpsichord, the clavichord allows the performer to continue to influence the sound after striking a key, offering a universe of possibilities to the sensitive keyboardist. Alard's program will offer the chance to hear a varied program of dramatic music on a seldom heard instrument; a special gift to us from this compelling artist.


Alard will return to the stage on Friday, Dec. 2 for a performance of J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier on harpsichord.


There will be no pre-concert talk for this event.
