  2. Classical Music Discussion
    I have always been attending live performance before the pandemic, but after the pandemic, everything has changed so drastically. I find a website called recital stream and I have attended a harpsichord performance a few days ago. The experience was a bit weird but interesting I will say. I am...

  4. Identifying Classical Music
    Hello all! Quick question - I am doing some research into "The Birds" by Respigh, a work in which he looked back to renaissance and baroque music for inspiration, and am writing on the various historic keyboard/lute compositions that were transcribed for orchestra for each movement. I have...

    Hi. I've heard some separate movements of Bach's Harpsichord Concertos and I'm in love, can't get enough of them. Anyways I want to listen to an actual recording of them and I'm looking for suggestions. I would prefer it if they were played on the harpsichord. By the way, I'm referring mainly to...

    From 0:17-0:25 (Disclaimer: It is very short, so if anyone helps me identify this piece will be deemed a professional, like really.)

    Hi everyone. I hope this is the right place to post this question. I'm an OK piano player who started playing the harpsichord at the beginning of this year. (Surprisingly, the technique is quite different, and it's a bit like being a beginner again!) Another adult student learning the flute and...

    I am completely taken with Masaaki Suzuki's recording of the 6 Partitas. Wonderful performance, superb recording quality. I have seen that Suzuki also has a set of the French Suites available on BIS. Has anyone heard this and is it of a similar quality? What other Bach Harpsichord recordings...

    The piece at the beginning. It sounds a bit different from the regular harpsichord. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    If you could only own 3 Bach solo keyboard recordings what would you choose?* * Including harpsichord, piano or organ recordings only please.

    Unlike the piano only valueing the dynamic, harpsichord need layers of sound to make musical integrity, it is very sensitive to evaluate the recording quality with harpsichords. Harpsichord for me is a touchstone to test a labels recording quality.I personally also avoid vocal and other...

    There's always a lot of talk on here about the difficulty of modern and contemporary music. But the 20th and 21st century have no monopoly on difficulty. What works from centuries past have you found inscrutable? Did you eventually come around to any of them? I'll start with a few: -Mahler's...

    I would really like to attempt to learn any or all of the Bach Single Harpsichord concertos at home by practicing to a recording featuring ONLY the orchestra part without a harpsichord. I would be very grateful if anyone knows: 1) Do any such recordings even exist? It would seem logical that...

    So I've decided on tackling these variations. I am fond of the harpsichord playing but I don't have a harpsichord so i'm trying to find the piano sheet music. I want to purchase the aria+variations for piano digitally to read off my laptop. I've searched around google for a little but haven't...

    I wish to donate the scores of my compositions, mainly for harpsichord. I hope you will play and share them so that my work won't be lost. You can find them in pdf at this link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/bpm6dk2d8spxa7a/Compositions-by-ChiaveMagica.rar Hope you will enjoy my baroque...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    I really like some of the keyboard works I've heard from Baroque period composers such as J.S. Bach. I was wondering if there are any modern composers that create Baroque-style music, especially for instruments like harpsichord, piano, or the organ. Does anyone know? I think there's still a...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    Being a bit of a purest and an authentic performance nut, I’m becoming more convinced the more I listen to the Harpsichord the piano only seems like second best in this repertory. I know performers like Glenn Gould and more recently Angelina Hewitt have become well known for fine performances of...

    Hi, I think this could be of interest for the keyboard community. Improvisation on clavichord, harpsichords and organ at http://www.clavichord.se/recordings/ The recordings are made by Hans Erik Svensson at the Musikmuseet of Stockholm and the musician is Mikko Korhonen from the Sibelius...
