I remember the first music classes in elementary school, probably 4th or 5th grade. The teacher opened up the case of an upright piano and plucked the strings, to show what a Harpsichord might sound like, she played records of instruments country kids were unlikely to ever see or hear. I was captivated by the sound of the Harpsichord. Over the years I have seen a handful of them, heard one played a couple of times for just a minute or two.
Mt. Vernon has purchased a recreation of the one that George Washington bought for his family. It is on a concert tour here in the DC area. We recently had tickets for 90 minutes of amazing music.
Have you heard one played live?
