BRITISH HARPSICHORD SOCIETY
‘Conversing with Style’
Bookended by Bach’s French suite in D minor and Bach’s youthful, zany Toccata in D minor the programme takes stylistic borrowing as a loose point of departure. The programme will feature Matthew Jackson’s ‘In Conversation with Frescobaldi’ (2019) and Francois Couperin’s 4th Ordre from his Pieces de Clavecin (Book 1).
Anhad has recently graduated with a First from Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford, where he was previously an academic scholar. He is currently an MSt student in Musicology at St Cross College, Oxford, funded by the Humanities Division at Oxford University. Before Oxford, he was a student at the RCM Junior Department, studying piano, harpsichord and cello. During his time at the RCMJD he won the Freda Dinn Memorial Prize for Early Music and was named the youngest scholar of the British Clavichord Society. During his undergraduate years he was also the director of New Chamber Opera Studio. His current research explores Orientalism in Austro-German Lieder, particularly those of Franz Schubert and Robert Schumann. He is building a combinative methodology grounded in postcolonial approaches to the study of Western Art song, ethnography, literary criticism, theories of social space, and musical analysis.
