HASH(0xa9866438) out of 5 stars A seminal work of extraordinary scholarship July 9 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The fifth volume in the outstanding Pendragon Press 'The Historical Harpsichord' series, "Aspects Of Harpsichord Making In The British Isles" focuses on the 18th Century English harpsichords produced by Shudi and Kirckman, and other British Georgian era makers (including Ferdinand Webert who operated out of Dublin, Ireland). The collaborative effort of Darryl Martin (Curator of the Edinburgh University Collection of Historic Musical Instruments), Jenny Nex (Curator of the Museum of Instruments, Royal College of Music, London), Lance Whitehead and Grant O'Brien, "Aspects Of Harpsichord Making In The British Isles" is composed into three major sections: The Native Tradition in Transition: English Harpsichords circa 1680-1725; The Stringed keyboard Instruments of Ferdinand Weber; and Criteria for the Determination of Original Stringing in Historical Keyboard Instruments: The Cautionary Tale of a 1785 Longman and Broderip Harpsichord. Enhanced with four appendices (including an extensive bibliography), "Aspects Of Harpsichord Making In The British Isles" is a seminal work of extraordinary scholarship and an invaluable addition to academic library reference collections. Also very highly recommended are the four earlier volumes comprising this superbly composed series: "Reconstructing the Harpsichord"; "The Metallurgy of 17th and 18th-Century Music Wire; "Bartolomeo Cristofori as a Harpsichord Maker/The Identification and Authentication of Italian Stringed Keyboard Instruments"; and "Harpsichord Decoration: A Conspectus/A Fable Deconstructed: The 1770 Taskin at Yale".
