Some info on my instruments!

The clavichord I’m playing on was built by Joris Potvlieghe (B) in 2009, in the Saxon style. It serves me extremely well for music from Bach to Beethoven, and, unlike what we might think today, such instruments were historically used to play 18th century music. There is a prevalent idea that clavichords are problematic for concerts because of their limited sound output. Speaking for me and my instrument, I’ve played for crowds of up to 250 people without any complaints regarding the lack of sound. I’m convinced that, in the coming years, this “sensitive lady” will be heard much more!

I have a fortepiano currently being built for me by Joris Potvlieghe. We are lucky to have the original piano, a 1816 Johann Fritz (Vienna) in poor but unaltered condition, so Joris can make a very close copy of the original. This will be an ideal instrument for the music of for music of Beethoven, Schubert, late Mozart, Czerny, early Chopin etc.
More pictures soon when the piano is finished in June!
