Description

These two CDs, issued by arrangement with Decca and in association with the British Clavichord Society, include all the commercial clavichord recordings that Thurston Dart ever made. Most of the tracks are derived from two LPs recorded in stereo in January 1961 of Bach's French Suites and a selection of suites and miscellaneous pieces by J. J. Froberger. In a letter written to Martin Stafford in 1963 Dart described these as 'two of the best discs I have ever made'. A further 23 minutes of music are added from mono tracks recorded in 1958 and 1954
