Peter Hagen 11 December 2019

Originally a salon was a place to gather people of like minds to share ideas, arts and culture, philosophies and news in a social setting. It was in this manner for example that Schubert aired many of his compositions. The French word “salon” meaning large room has been used since the late 17th century, in particular by the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in Paris for their annual exhibitions, although other earlier examples of people sharing their passion for all that is noble, beautiful and high minded are many.

Salon Concerts at Broadford seeks to promote chamber music in regional areas for an affordable price. At it’s home in Broadford in a spacious mud brick home on 12 hectares of natural bushland, it provides a setting of intimacy and a sense of occasion for local residents. Farther afield it provides the same professional musicians and beautiful programmes. Peter Hagen’s collection of keyboard instruments feature two world class harpsichords and a C7 Yamaha grand piano. The Colmar Ruckers harpsichord copy made by Jean-Michel Chablot features in most of the baroque concerts particularly the solo recitals performed by Peter Hagen and a single manual harpsichord by Klinkhamer in Amsterdam is the perfect accompaniment for early baroque and other concerts requiring a penetrating yet warm clear sound. A clavichord forms a further part of this fine collection of instruments.
