F - FLEMISH DOUBLE MANUAL HARPSICHORD 'RUCKERS'
BY MARC DUCORNET
The workshop of Ruckers is credited to build probably the most perfect harpsichords ever and it sets the benchmark for harpsichordists and harpsichord makers even today.
The Flemish cembalo is solid in construction, colorful in tone with a rich resonance. The Flemish makers were the first to build two-manual harpsichords after 1600.
