All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

Double keyboard FRENCH HARPSICHORD after Jean-Claude GOUJON.

J.Cl. Goujon was a XVIIIth century French harpsichordmaker . At that time, the French makers used to copy XVIIth century Flemish instruments but progressively softened the sound. J.Cl. Goujon is situated in the middle of this transition: he has left the very harmonic Flemish sound, present, fleshy, polyphonic and not yet reached the late French sound, round, with the instruments played with the ends of the fingers, delicate, a little affected and distant.

J.Claude Goujon’s harpsichord is a full, worthy, royal instrument...expressing to perfection the pomp and refinement of the great century.
