Pitfalls and Pleasures: recording on a 1764 Harpsichord

In January 2008 John Irving spent a week making a CD recording of 18th-century harpsichord works on a historic keyboard instrument in a museum at Edinburgh University. In this talk he explores some of the pros and cons of using a 'real' instrument (rather than a modern copy) in such a recording project, introduces some performance practice issues and plays some of the recordings.
