Christine Schornsheim, one of the most eminent specialists of historic keyboard instruments, performs J S Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier on the Ruckers-Harpsichord in Colmar. Only a few harpsichords from 17th century Antwerp have survived and are still fully functional today.

Speaking of the harpsichord, Christine Schornsheim writes: “It is the most beautiful instrument I know, a nightingale: modest on the outside but its sound bedazzles. It is earthy, warm and singing, with a bright responsiveness; it has everything that is essential for Bach’s polyphonic music.
