It seems to me the instrumental balances are off, and it sounds like it might be a modern violin, which seems to dominate the harpsichord. Contrary to a previous comment, it sounds to me as if it is rather closely recorded, and the instruments are not given enough space and do not seem to blend well together because of the way they were recorded.
Quote from: amw on October 10, 2017, 05:04:29 AMOne thing I've noticed is that recordings of harpsichords almost all seem to fall victim to the loudness war: compressed sound normalised to 0dB. This makes them sound much louder than any other instrument. In reality the harpsichord is pretty quiet (much softer than e.g. the piano) and how resonant it is depends on the venue, but it seems difficult to find "realistic" recordings of one.
