from Atelier Marc Ducornet
Seeing a need for affordable, practical, yet high quality smaller instruments suitable both for professionals and amateurs, I decided to see if some of the wonderful instruments made in Atelier Marc Ducornet, under his AMD logo, would be appreciated in the United States. They are very popular in Europe. I imported two of the Le Petit Clavecin model, and showed them at the 2015 Boston Early Music Festival Exhibition. They were huge hits both at the Exhibition and in performance at two Fringe concerts by Atlanta Baroque. People are stunned with how they sound like much larger instruments, with a beautiful full tone, and wonderful touch. Both had new homes within weeks.
This is a wonderful time to take advantage of the strong dollar to euro and acquire a high quality new harpsichord at a very reasonable price, starting under $7000 up to about $10,000 depending upon the model and options.
