In this ongoing series, Junior Fellows from our Artist Diploma programme push their creativity to the limit, both curating and performing in these unique concerts.
The performer in this concert is Apolline Khou, a French harpsichordist and pianist. She is The Carne Junior Fellow 2022/23.
The music in this evening's concert is performed on historical keyboards from the RCM Museum's collection, including three original instruments from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as a replica of the clavicytherium from 1480, the earliest surviving stringed keyboard instrument in the world.
The programme celebrates the French music by Renaissance and Baroque French composers Pierre de la Rue, Josquin Desprez, Jean-Baptiste Lully, François Couperin and Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, and by other composers inspired by the French style, such as Antonio de Cabezon, Henry Purcell and Johannes Brahms.
