At this moment, one of our projects is to make a copy of a fortepiano after Conrad Graf. A fortepiano poses quite different demands on the maker than a harpsichord. The harpsichord was, after all, in former centuries a product of handcraft by skilled masters. The fortepiano of the 19th century shows in many aspects that it was made in the times of the industrial revolution.

We will start soon with a copy of a harpsichord after Joaquim José Antunes.
