’His Lordship’s Delight’
neglected keyboard works from manuscript sources in the Founder’s collection.
The first in a series of four introduced recitals celebrating some of the Museum’s remarkable treasures of 18th century keyboard music, including harpsichord, spinet and organ works composed by Lord Fitzwilliam himself, rare keyboard music by Handel and his English contemporaries, and selected orchestral works in 18th-century arrangements for solo keyboard. The programmes will be presented in Gallery 3 and feature an historic harpsichord by Shudi & Broadwood built in London in about 1775, together with other instruments also supplied from Dr Gifford’s personal collection.
