The NEUPERT harpsichord in the Italian style was designed after an instrument now kept in Mozart‘s house in Salzburg. It was probably built in the second half of the 18th century by an unknown harpsichord maker in Northern Italy (Venice?). At its former location in Leipzig, the Thomaskantor Günther Ramin preferered to use the instrument in his concerts on account of its full and carrying sound. The restoration of this valuable original instrument in our workshop revealed such an overwhelming sound that NEUPERT decided to make a copy of it. In accordance with Italian tradition the instrument is built of light cypress-wood and with ornamental knobs of bone at the top edge of the case. The natural keys are covered with bone, the sharps are from ebony.
