|Abstract:||ABSTRACT Without doubt Classical-period repertoire was played on J. S. Bach’s favourite instrument—the clavichord. The aim of my thesis is to show that, alongside the harpsichord and piano, the clavichord was regarded as an important instrument for the performance of late-eighteenth-century keyboard sonatas. My contention is that the performance of these works on the clavichord can open the eyes of keyboard players to new ways of interpretation drawn from clavichord sound, technique, and expression. Scholar/performers are steadily expanding the repertoire for the clavichord by unearthing forgotten works, as well as re-establishing the clavichord as the historically appropriate instrument for repertoire, which, since its decline in the nineteenth century, was assumed to be composed with the piano in mind. My research will examine how techniques such as the Bebung, Tragen der Töne (portato) and Alberti Bass can most successfully be executed on the clavichord.|
