NEUPERT harpsichord "Telemann"

NEUPERT harpsichord


In the NEUPERT "Telemann" harpsichord you will own an instrument which opens up the possibilities of playing harpsichord music yet whose size and disposition concentrate on the essentials. 

This concept of the NEUPERT "Telemann" harpsichord has proved itself over many decades as an ideal partner for family music making, in music schools, on narrow organ galleries, or as a continuo instrument in concert halls. It has always been subject to continuous development and in the meantime has become the world's most-built harpsichord.

Even though it does not take up much space the instrument is characterized by a full, clear, and carrying sound. Its disposition of 8' and 4' with divided lute (8') provides a wide range of different timbres.

In addition to the illustrated version in walnut (as shown in our catalogue), the instrument can also be made with different kinds of veneer or in solid wood, painted or with gold decoration, or with different legs or stands upon request.
