Introducing the 2014 Academy: The Bach Circle: Keyboard Culture in the Eighteenth Century

This year’s artistic director in residence is Prof. Annette Richards, University organist at Cornell University and a leading scholar on Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. The organ academy will feature masterclasses on the literature of JS Bach, his students and sons that explore the rich landscape of keyboard instruments of eighteenth-century central Europe.

Concerts will feature the North German Baroque Organ in Örgryte New Church, the Swedish classical Schiörlin organ from 1783 in Jonsered, forte pianos, harpsichords, clavichords and the Swedish premiere of the new duo clavichord built by Per Anders Terning and Joel Speerstra.
