East Cork Early Music presents the inaugural recital of CIT Cork School of Music’s new clavichord. This instrument was commissioned by Cork School of Music, and was made by Ian Tucker, based on a pentagonal design by Michael Thomas.
This opening concert of the tenth East Cork Early Music Festival will feature Pierre Goy, who has specialised in performing the music of each period on appropriate instruments. He has performed with such ensembles as Il Giardino Armonico, Quatuor Mosaiques and Ensemble baroque de Limoges. He has also formed a duo with Nicole Hostettler, playing on two fortepianos, harpsichord and fortepiano, as well as on two clavichords.
