Before the piano became ubiquitous in nearly every household and concert hall, the harpsichord reigned as the supreme keyboard instrument during the Renaissance and Baroque eras. Getting up close and personal in this documentary, we look at this fascinating instrument and its unique structure, sound, and expressivity through the eyes of Chicago-based harpsichordist, Jason J. Moy.Special thanks to Fiona Queen and The Music Institute of Chicago for their generosity and support. Visit for more information.
