Synopsis: This is the first book on the harpsichord of the twentieth century, covering all known makes since the revival began about fifty years ago. The author visited the workshops of makers in Europe and America and discussed with them firsthand their philosophies and methods of construction. He evaluates the wide range of contemporary models, giving detailed critiques of their characteristics. He assesses the historical influences on modern instruments, materials and production techniques, and the origin of the harpsichord and the development of the five historical styles. A section on maintenance and repair deals with tuning systems, each potential problem area of the harpsichord in detail, as well as moving, crating, storage, and emergency repairs. 9x11.5", 255 pp., over 350 b&w photographs and diagrams of the instruments, their actions and mechanisms.
