Playing the pedal clavichord

Charlston, T. (2023) Playing the pedal clavichord. Organists' Review ISSN 0048-2161


Based on the practical experience of playing the pedal clavichord, this article considers the relationship between clavichord and organ playing and outlines ways in which pedal clavichord technique can inform organ performance. This invited contribution follows on from the article, Charlston, T. (2022) The Orgelbüchlein as pedal clavichord music. Harpsichord & Fortepiano, 27 (1). pp. 11-15. ISSN 0953-0797. It examines the historical evidence for the construction and widespread use of the pedal clavichord and proposes a cross-over of technique, touch and tone production between clavichord and organ for modern day players.
