Rare Music: The Clavichord

Friday, 17 October, 4pm, Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Book Room
Sentimental Journey, featuring Steve Barrell, Clavichord
The program will be played on a 1785 clavichord and will include a variety of works by Reichardt, Müthel and Carl Phillip Emmanuel Bach.

Steve Barrell has been a featured performer, lecturer and performance coach for clavichord societies and early music festivals in Europe and the US. In 2002, Steve debuted the newly-restored JA Hass clavichord (Hamburg 1763) for the British Clavichord Society during its annual conclave at the Raymond Russell Keyboard Collection in Edinburgh. His collection of historic keyboard instruments, including the Lindholm clavichord heard in this concert, is considered among the best in the US.

A Durham resident, Steve earned the MA in Historic Performance Practices at Duke and is also employed by the University.

Rare Music is co-sponsored by the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections (DUMIC) and the
Duke University Libraries with additional support from the Vice Provost for the Arts, the Carrabina
Endowment, Friends of DUMIC, VoChor Incorporated, and the Hopper Piano & Organ Company.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
