The Spinet on a Winter’s Afternoon in East Dulwich

I met up with my fellow teacher and companion in piano adventures, Frances Wilson from Cross Eye Pianist. Frances had just been to the Dulwich Picture Gallery to review the latest exhibit for OneStopArts. She came over to try the spinet out. Frances plays a lot of Bach and it was fascinating to hear how playing on the original instrument for which his keyboard works were written really gives the player a different perspective on the music. The music almost becomes a different piece with a different meaning when it is played on a spinet.

Here is the piece that I played: La Morangis ou La Plissay (part) by Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Forqueray.

Frances plays Adagio from Concerto in D minor after Marcello BWV 947 by JS Bach.
