  • The Art of Making a Harpsichord
    The Art of Making a Harpsichord

    Description For around three hundred years, the harpsichord was the leading domestic musical instrument and often a highly fashionable piece of furniture as well. Usurped by the piano at the beginning of the nineteenth century, it was taken up again with the first revival of early music at the beginning of the twentieth century. Over the past forty years, makers have been getting closer to reproducing examples from the historical past. Now, The Art of Making a Harpsichord gives its readers the...

  • The Worlds of Harpsichord and Organ
    The Worlds of Harpsichord and Organ

    After a Foreword by William Christie reflecting on a half-century of musical friendship with David Fuller, essays by an international roster of musicologists present new research about the music, theory, and organology of the harpsichord and the organ.

  • Three Centuries of Harpsichord Making
    Three Centuries of Harpsichord Making

    Here are the traditions of harpsichord making as they might have been taught to young apprentices in five countries where the craft once flourished: Italy, Flanders, France, England, and Germany.

  • Buxtehude at the Harpsichord (Move Records MD3191)
    Buxtehude at the Harpsichord (Move Records MD3191)

    Buxtehude, the composers' composer! J.S. Bach walked 200 miles to hear him play and nearly lost his job, Handel in his usual manner 'borrowed' the opening theme from his 'Prelude in G' to use as the theme in "And he shall purify" from the 'Messiah'; Brahms, Pachelbel, Bruhns and Mattheson were all inspired by him. His fame was widespread even in his day and he is frequently referred to as the most significant organ composer before Bach. More details .

  • Arne: Eight Harpsichord Sonatas - AUDIO CD
    Arne: Eight Harpsichord Sonatas - AUDIO CD

    Whereas Arne’s career lay primarily in the theatre (his melodic gifts ensured success not only in Italianate opera, but in masque and pantomime as well), an appointment in 1754 as composer to the Vauxhall Gardens meant that he needed to exercise his talents in song writing as well as keyboard concertos. Rarely recorded, the eight harpsichord sonatas (all Arne ever composed in this genre) are a delight.
