Finally had time to listen to all of them. Let me be the third person to declare myself bowled over by your ornaments; they're truly a joy to hear! I did not listen with the score, but could tell that the recordings were also very accurate in addition to being energetic and musical.
Thank you Stu ! I'm pleased to find pianists who like harpsichord, a so under-ranked instrument...
May I ask you a question? What is the nature of the settings in #2 and the second half of #5? The plucking "component" of the sound in #2 is so subdued that it sounds like a lute; whereas #5 is rather like the piano's "una corda". Is this an electronic instrument?? Or a mic effect? Thanks.
Hence I don't have a real harpsichord, unfortunately. Rather I play on a digital keyboard (Yamaha P 120) that I purchased to be able to play piano on a portable instrument. My surprise was to find that other sounds were better reproduced, like harpsichord, vibraphone and others. Especially when I plug directly the keyboard on a recorder, I get quite a nice sound, very clean and realistic, especially in the low range.
Real harpsichord generally have a 'lute' register. My keyboard has a guitar sound that I use instead, eg in the two pieces you refer to. It's good, in a suite, to give some rest to the ears with this soft sound; as a matter of fact, the harpsichord one is bright and sunny, but it may be a little too harsh when used for too long pieces or too many of them. At least for my taste...
