The harpsichord used for this recording is the copy of Ruckers Antwerp 1612 of the Flemish school. Three registers, transposition from 440 to 415 and lute. The colors in the tones give the performer expressiveness and dynamics. The valuable essence that has been used in decoration is the bois de rose; visible on the wrest plank, on the base and on the rosette inlaid by hand. The geometries on the sides were painted with natural earth colors with the intention of creating a marble effect. The sound, in its strings, has a French influence, but reaches the ear full of harmonics for a variety of colors that make it meticulous and characterful.
They emerge from the wood paintings that express forms without artifice. Forms that change over time, in the detail of nodes not hidden and visible construction details. The employment of the cypress choice in the sound board and the case has been laborious unknown, but returned to our listening rich sound, heat and long lasting color.
