The Harpsichordist

A short documentary on the Harpsichord, an instrument that is often mistaken for a piano.

Before there came to be a piano in nearly every household and concert hall, the harpsichord reigned as the supreme keyboard instrument during the Renaissance and BaHarpsichords were widely used in Renaissance and Baroque music.
