    I know this is *Piano*society, but would you accept recordings of appropriate repertoire on a harpsichord?

    Regards,

    Hello Jim,
    It would be great to have more harpsichord on PS ! Up to now I've been quite lonesome in this field, having sent mostly French harspichordist recordings (Couperin, Rameau) and some English ones (Gibbons, Byrd). Do you have a real harpsichord ?
    Regards,

    I do have a real harpsichord, of sorts. It's a Burton spinet, that is, a more-or-less French spinet built from a Burton kit. It's definitely what you would call a starter harpsichord, but it's a start. Here's a photo; as for how it sounds, there are a few videos on youtube, and of course I hope to post something soon. I am a beginner, and I hope to post some of the Bach little preludes and some Louis Couperin (my two favorite composers).

    Regards,

    JCA

    Speaking of the French Clavecinistes, I am readying the Rameau Gavotte (et six doubles) for a recital and hope to provide recording in next month or two (I still have to buy my new equipment).

    Edit: On Piano

    Great ! This is actually the first Rameau's piece I studied, some... 39 years ago (I was 14, I think !). Presently I am preparing a set of pieces that I will record in the next few days, if God wants... Therefore Jean-Philippe will be happy to see his name celebrated at PS !

    Good to hear it! (Also my 1st Rameau ... and only :( ) I last perfomed it in 1984. BTW, I just listened to your Rameau recordings and like them VERY much! Thank you.
