Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Contemporary harpsichord refers to the use of the musical instrument the harpsichord in the 20th century. The instrument was successfully revived thanks to pioneers such as Wanda Landowska. The harpsichord had fallen out of popularity during the mid 18th century in favour of the fortepiano and keyboard. In the 20th century it was revived and composers once again began writing for harpsichord. Significant composers wrote for the harpsichord in the 20th century including Manuel de Falla, Francis Poulenc (Concert champ tre), Frank Martin, Philip Glass, Michael Nyman, Louis Andriessen, Theo Bruins and Iannis Xenakis.show more
