Wherever music from the Baroque period is heard, the harpsichord is usually not far away. Its festive sound characterises an entire musical era. It is well known that Handel was a true virtuoso on the harpsichord; he established his reputation and career as a soloist on that instrument. A fascination for this intimate genre of instrument has inspired Andrey Pracht for many years. The renowned harpsichordist is a composer, a specialist in historically informed performance practice and historical keyboard instruments.
