Dr Penelope Cave brings her wide experience of teaching and performing both piano and harpsichord to lead this course, offering pianists the opportunity to try out the harpsichord for, perhaps, the first time. In addition to learning about the instrument and its technique, students will benefit in leaving with a much wider understanding of historic style. It is also a useful opportunity to improve a baroque exam piece. Please bring along a prelude and a dance movement by Purcell and any 2-part invention by Bach, as well as some of your own choice from the period 1550-1750. Participants will have the opportunity to play our Goble harpsichord and there will also be a piano nearby for comparison.
