JOSEPH HAYDN (1732-1809): The Seven Last Words, Hob. XX/1:C.
Catalogue Number: 02K035
Reference: ABCD 251
Description: Let's see: full orchestra, string quartet, fortepiano, harpsichord, modern piano... nope, no clavichord versions yet. So here we are, complete with a note about how Haydn bought a new clavichord as late as 1794, but there is a good argument to be made for this instrument as an excellent interpreter of the intense, spare, inward emotions Haydn evokes in this cycle. Aapo Häkkinen (1775 Silbermann clavichord).
