Jean Nandi Harpsichord Recital (Dec. 12, 1971)

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 84 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

A recital of harpsichord music by Jean Nandi, recorded on December 12, 1971 at the Berkeley Piano Club. Ms. Nandi plays a selection of works by Louis Couperin, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Domenico Scarlatti, J.S. Bach, & Lou Harrison. The harpsichord used in this concert was built for Jean Nandi in 1970 by Richard Alexander, of Berkeley California. The scaling is similar to an instrument made by Andreas Ruckers, of Antwerp, in 1639. This original instrument is now in the Gemeentemuseumin of The Hague, Netherlands. Mr. Alexander modified the design of the original, chiefly to allow a greater range.
