Bach project completed

Fellow in Music Francis Knights has finished the last of 21 recitals performing the complete keyboard works of Bach, which has taken three and a half years and involved learning some 300,000 notes.

This is the first ever complete series of these works on the clavichord, the most common domestic keyboard instrument of 18th century Germany. The project also generated about a dozen conference papers and articles related to organology, stylistic development and performance practice.

Last year Francis finished a 30-concert cycle of the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, and he is now working on a series of programmes of German keyboard music from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
