French Spinet after "J.Cl. GOUJON"

J.Cl. Goujon is an XVIIIth century harpsichord maker. At that time, the French builders used to copy XVIIth century Flemish instruments, softening the sound progressively. J.Cl. Goujon is situated in the middle of this transition. The instruments no longer have the Flemish harmonic, present, rich, polyphonic sound.

But have not yet entirely developed the late French sound, round, mannered, the instruments played with the tips of the fingers, delicately and a little distant. J.Cl. Goujon s spinet is thus a very balanced instrument on which one can play with the equal pleasure French music and the northern and polyphonic repertoire
