Chit Chat: Music for Two Clavichords.

New Release

How often does one encounter the rich sonority of two clavichords on two superb historical instruments? This project celebrates this rare and enchanting medium with a range of works written specifically for Terence Charlston and Julian Perkins by acclaimed composer-performers Iain Farrington and Heloise Werner, in addition to works by Alexander J. Blustin, Peter Maxwell Davies, Nicola LeFanu, Timothy Roberts, Peter Thorne, and Charlston himself. Read more.

Froberger: Complete Fantasias and Canzonas.

The eight fantasias and six canzonas of Johann Jacob Froberger (1616-1667) are amongst his most beautifully crafted yet most neglected works. They survive together with toccatas and partitas in a meticulously written autograph manuscript, the Libro Secondo, dated 19 September 1649. This is the first recording of all 14 works on the clavichord.

Divine Art Recordings

Reviews: "But not a single note of this disc ever sounds too private or too furtive. In the hands of Charlston, his clavichord soars and expands before our very ears. Through this incantation of counterpoint, in turns both exotic and familiar, Charlston reveals a depth of humanity on par with the great polyphonic achievements of J.S. Bach." Adam Sherkin (The Whole Note)

I should not forget to acknowledge the efforts of the technical staff which has managed to make the clavichord sound very natural. Ample reasons to label this disc Recording of the Month."

Carlo Ignazio Monza: Keyboard Music

Monza (c.1696-1739): 4 Suites and a Prelude and Fugue from Pièces Modernes Pour le Clavecin: Bartolomeo Monari da Bologna (c.1663-1697) 2 Sonatas;  Bernardo Pasquini (1637-1710)Toccata con lo Scherzo del Cucco

Performed on an Italian harpsichord after Giusti by David Evans, 1999

"The playing on this CD is nothing short of miraculous: exciting, expressive, rhythmically taught, with every piece gauged to perfection ... unabashed comfort food for lovers of the harpsichord. Terence Charlston is a highly-regarded British harpsichordist "he is obviously a major, major talent." Fanfare Magazine, FEB 2010

"His rendition of the Prelude and Fugue in F minor is particularly appealing, lingering for just the right amount of time on the juiciest harmonies in the Prelude and conveying the drama of the densely chromatic Fugue with an expert's sense of timing." Early Music (2014) Volume 42, Issue 1, pp. 141-143.

"Terence Charlston's playing is neat and bright, enlivening repeats with well-chosen ornaments, and everywhere responding sympathetically to Locke's slightly quirky individuality. This may be slight music, but Charlston and Deux-Elles have taken the job of committing it to disc with admirable seriousness."  GRAMOPHONE  FEBRUARY 2004

"This disc from Deux-Elles is sheer proof that the harpsichord, virginals and the organ are the most expressive instruments and these works from Matthew Locke show their high status in the field of seventeenth century keyboard music...this release from Deux-Elles is one to be treasured."  Classical Music on the Web September 2003

"Terence Charlston plays persuasively. He has a fresh, off-the-key touch, letting air into lines and textures, and ornamenting crisply.  He uses four contrasting instruments...all recorded with admirable immediacy." BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE DEC 2003 PERFORMANCE****SOUND*****
