The harpsichord as organ and more . . .
« on: August 30, 2015, 12:53:27 PM »
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5bS_aS_zo4 might be an interesting recital including Bach which might be played on the organ . . . and other modes of harpsichord sound including the peau de boeuf rank sounding very much like a hard, and a simple harpsichord one manual with split keyboard using the buff in the bass to contrast the tune singing against a lute in the bass, as one might register a single manual organ with spit keyboard at middle C.

It seems as though this thread is either the thread-killer or the forum killer.

Experience of these harpsichords has been interesting because one of them really demonstrates the harmonic content of the organ in some ways. A previous recital https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQThFU-Wj8w impressed me with the instrument at around 33 minutes and a friend of mine describes the sound of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bgsy05Lm2w the K141 Scarlatti at around 8 minutes as almost orchestral.

These instruments are rather more than the sum of their parts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5bS_aS_zo4 for the whole recital.
