I saw this on a music list and just thought someone might be interested.
Masterclass on the Pedal harpsichord. Royal College of Organists.
St Giles Cripplegate in the Barbican Centre on Friday 4 November from 2.00pm – 5.00pm.A pedal-harpsichord (a harpsichord with a full pedalboard) would have been found in the home of most German organists during the Baroque period. Bach possibly wrote his Trio Sonatas for pedal-harpsichord, and his Passacaglia was also arguably for pedal-harpsichord.
Under the guidance of the brilliant young Slovenian keyboardist Dalibor Miklavcic, become a Baroque German organist for the afternoon, discovering the sensations and sounds of working on this now rare and fascinating instrument.
Restricted to 6 active participants students of at least grade 7 keyboard standard, but observers of any standard will also find this class very interesting.
Fee for players: £60.00, for booking form see http://rco.org.uk/pdfs/Autumn11applicationform%28updated%29.pdf
The next day Saturday 5 November, also at St Giles Cripplegate.
the RCO London Organ Forum featuring Dalibor Miklavcic, on the subject of
