Music

Lord Fitzwilliam as editor and performer of music

Harpsichord recital, to be performed by Dr Gerald Gifford FRCM, Honorary Keeper of Music.

The last in a series of three introduced recitals throughout 2016 to celebrate the Museum’s bicentenary. The series draw upon selected holdings of harpsichord and organ music from the Founder’s collection, revealing both the public image that Lord Fitzwilliam portrayed as an influential patron of music, and also the private interests that he pursued in collecting his extensive library of manuscript and printed music.
