Actually, I think that most people probably first hear a harpsichord
on a CD recording of a baroque ensemble work. I have heard many such
recordings on the radio recently and they have all shared the same
problem: the harpsichord is balanced too loud. Real life is
different and, I suspect, must be a big disappointment to many listeners.
