If These Keys Could Speak
Daniel Trumbull (harpsichord)
Daniel Trumbull, winner of the 2015 Broadwood Horniman Harpsichord Competition, invites you to explore the history of one of the most famous harpsichords ever built: the Colmar Ruckers. Created in 1624 by the legendary Ioannes Ruckers in Antwerp, it was treasured for its unique sound, passed through many hands, surviving wars and the French Revolution, and ended up in the possession of the infamous de Sade family. Music by John Philips, Louis and François Couperin, George Frideric Handel, and others. A copy of the Colmar Ruckers is owned by Handel & Hendrix and will be used in the concert.
