AEM ONLINE – L’Art de Toucher le Clavecin Redux with Peter Sykes

March 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT


It’s not for nothing that this most important and influential treatise on harpsichord playing concerned itself so thoroughly with touch. Each keyboard instrument needs a different kind of touch in order to bring forth its most beautiful tone, and the harpsichord is no exception. In this lecture-recital class Peter Sykes will explore the mysteries, and the magic, of harpsichord touch. Participants may also play examples in a question-and-answer portion of the class. To apply for a demonstrator spot, please indicate your piece when you register. Geared to: Keyboard players of all levels

AEM ONLINE offers four classes each weekend! Register for any number of sessions – classes are $25 per session and are offered using the Zoom meeting app, or your web browser. Music for the classes is available in advance. You will receive an email with links to webpages for each class where you can find class materials, and the Zoom link after you register. We hope you’ll join us!
