Saturday Strings

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Kathy Roberts Perl

performing the Prelude in B flat minor
from The Well-Tempered Clavier, book 2
by J. S. Bach

on harpsichord

The harpsichord is a stringed instrument similar to the piano in that it is played using a keyboard, however the strings are plucked instead of hammered. It is used frequently in Baroque music.
