Kobe is set to host a rare clavichord concert titled “Patterns of Plants; Fragile Sound Tapestries Played on the Clavichord”on Dec. 13.
The clavichord is a stringed instrument with a keyboard. It was used across Eurpope mainly in the 17th and 18th centuries. Historically, it was mostly used for practice and as an aid to composition. Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is one of the more notable figures who used the instrument to compose music.
