Bizzi French Double Manual Harpsichord 'Goermans-Taskin'

by Bizzi

French double manual harpsichord after 'Goermans-Taskin'. The original instruments upon which Bizzi has based his studies are amongst the most important known harpsichords. The “Goermans - Taskin” was originally a Flemish harpsichord that Taskin transformed (ravalement) into a great French instrument.
Its bright and sonorous voice makes it particularly suitable for a wide repertoire and for large concert halls. Compass: F0 - F5, 61 notes.
