Dave K's posting reminds me of a question I've been meaning to ask.
There are very few modern recordings of Pleyel harpsichords around; in
fact, I can't think of a single one that I would regard as a good
_recording_ (there are some of stellar performances, but the sound seems
always to be miserable.) My question is, how many of you out there are
familiar with the Pleyel and its role in the harpsichord revival, how
many of you are familiar with its particular sound, and how many would
be interested in a digital recording of a similar harpsichord, complete
with 16', pedals, lightning mid-phrase stop changes, and all the other
perks that come with the breed?
I'd be interested in reactions.
