“HPSCHD: Music Machine Eight Centuries Old” is a Hamburg Open Online University (hoou.de) project about harpsichord. It consists of a number of videos and texts and is currently in it’s final stages before publishing. In these, we are answering questions such as: Which kinds of keyboard instruments were there in the past? How did they differ? What music was written for these instruments and how do composers use the harpsichord nowadays? We also talk about how to play the instruments, what kind of problems can occur and how do you find solutions for them.
So, while we continue with the post-production of our videos, we would like to invite you to attend the live-event in the frame of this project. We will listen to and discuss early music pieces from the 16th to the 18th centuries as well as contemporary classical music written for the harpsichord in the second half of the 20th century.
