Allemande from Handel’s D minor Suite HWV 428, played on a real 18th century harpsichord

Allemande from Handel’s D minor Suite HWV 428, played on the William Smith (c1720) harpsichord at the Bate Collection in Oxford, by Douglas Mews. This instrument quite possibly was played by Handel himself and is certainly built in a style he would have been familiar with. Recorded at a Gallery Recital 25.5.13.

    Such a warm, full sound– much more so than the average harpsichord, at least in my experience.
    This reminds me of visiting Handel’s house in London the summer before last.
