Five pieces for two clavichords

Charlston, T. (2018) Five pieces for two clavichords. [Composition] (Unpublished)

Abstract

The ‘Five Pieces for Two Clavichords’ were composed for a concert performance using two five-octave unfretted clavichords and inspired by the 40th anniversary of ‘Four Lessons for Two Keyboards’ Op. 81 written by Peter Maxwell Davies in 1978. The first performance was given by Terence Charlston and Julian Perkins on 30th March 2019 in the Quaker Meeting House, Harpenden, UK. The video performances given by Julian Perkins and Terence Charlston were recorded at Stone House in South London on 6 September 2019. The first video includes a spoken introduction followed by a performance of No. 1 of the five pieces, and the second video introduces a performance of No. 4. The clavichords are by Peter Bavington (2002) after J. H. Silbermann and by Karin Richter (1998) after C. G. Hubert. The Hubert/Richter clavichord was kindly loaned by Peter Bavington and Judith Wardman. Video producer: Zen Grisdale.
