The suggested virtues of the clavichord are given by the simplest possible construction of its mechanics. In the true sense of the word, there simply aren't any. The string vibrates as long as the key is depressed.
Then the tangent moves away and the whole string is silenced by a felt damper on the left hand side where it is secured to the main body of the instrument. The player's finger can alter the pressure of the tangent on the strings while they are vibrating, thus the measure of vibration is controlled and, in fact, also the purity of the tuning of two or more notes sounding together. The gentle lever connected to each clavichord key affords perfect control of the keys using all the fingers and allows the player to achieve fine distinction of tone colour. This is a marvellous advantage, regardless of the fact that the performer never disturbs his surroundings with his diligent practice: the clavichord is practically inaudible.
Therefore, I also recommend that, while listening to our compact disc, you adjust the volume of your amplifier until the sound from your loudspeakers becomes gently soothing. Only when you find yourself having to strain to hear anything at all, you'll have the opportunity to savour something which, in the world of consumer music, is unrivalled.
Naturally, an experience like this cannot be enjoyed as background music for another activity. There is, of course, the danger that, by listening with the volume turned down, you may fall asleep A number of musicians performing live concerts on the clavichord have found that even the incredibly soft sound of the clavichord is able to seize the attention of the public, even during the course of awhole evening's recital.
The strange thing is that the human ear, after a while, is truly able to adapt itself, and begins to differentiate even the relatively small differences in sound as expressively emotive and aesthetically effective. Like the Inventions and Sinfonias which, in my opinion, is one extended compositional architectural piece, the duets from the third section of the piano exercises are also conceived by the composer chiefly as philosophical micro?
This is supported by the traditional notion that, in these four, intricate and difficult compositions, Bach was seeking musically to express Aristotle's four elements: earth, air, fire and water.
The castle chapel provides the perfect acoustic environment, its stone walls support the intonation of aliquot notes in the broadest possible spectrum. The listener who cannot resist turning up the volume to satisfy his requirements, will evidently be unsettled by other noises made by the instruments, namely the "clacking" of the keys and the occasional scraping sound.
In view of the authenticity of the instrument used, these sounds cannot be totally eliminated. A mere drop of a needle onto the stone floor would be seized by the microphone far more strongly. Schiedmayer was the most important member of this famous German family of instrument?
He was born in Erlangen, and for most of his life he worked in Neustadt an der Aisch. At least eight clavichords ascribed to him exist in the world today, one of which is to be found in Boston, USA. Another Schiedmayer clavichord located in Bohemia deserves a special mention; until recently it was in the property of a rural parish church.
