Quote from: Bunny on April 29, 2007, 12:08:26 PMI thought that the very legato effects were the result of the clavichord having hammers that strike the strings rather than plectra of the harpsichord. A harpsichord legato is a very different animal from the piano legato, but the clavichord is an instrument that has qualities of both, so I expected different tonal qualities.
Quote from: premont on April 29, 2007, 12:49:44 PMEven a clavichord has got a damping mechanism, which damps the sound of the string, when the key is released. And as far as we know, the normal touch on keyboard instruments in these days was non legato. So a clavichord player must take the action of his instrument into consideration when playing, in order to produce the effect of non-legato.

Quote from: stingo on September 03, 2007, 07:49:44 AMPierre Hantai is a favorite of mine. His Opus 111 recording of the Goldbergs remains a favorite of mine (especially so since it was that disc that first presented the work to me). His Mirare recording is of similar quality.
Quote from: Que on September 04, 2007, 09:56:26 PMBTW do you know Hantaï's WTC Book I (also on Mirare) and what do you think of it?
Quote from: Que on September 04, 2007, 09:56:26 PMBoth recordings are regarded highly, and I can understand why.But in the past they didn't agree with me because of Hantaï rather idiosyncratic, willful style. Perhaps I should return to them - Dantone's recording (few pasts above) is also in a rather "free" style. BTW do you know Hantaï's WTC Book I (also on Mirare) and what do you think of it?Q
