Modern interlude

16/03/2019 12:22

As a break from the ongoing FVB, Bach and German clavichord series, there was a concert last week at Hughes Hall, Cambridge, which was a century-long survey of modern clavichord music, likely the first time that has ever been done. As well as Seiber, Berkeley and Howells, there were a fair number of second performances, and world premieres of music by Alan Bullard, Barry Guy and Alexander Blustin; there will be a follow-up concert early next year.
