For any harpsichord rental inquiries, please use the form below to send me a brief note with your contact information and I will respond as soon as I can.
Thanks for your interest. I have a large Italian single manual harpsichord available for rental on a limited basis in the Chicago area, and one early French-style single manual harpsichord presently for sale. Both instruments are capable of playing at modern or Baroque pitches (A440 or lower), and have been meticulously maintained. Please use the contact form on this page to inquire about rental availability, rates, and other important information.
Renters are responsible for arranging transport of the harpsichord safely to and from the performance venue. If you prefer to hire professional, insured instrument movers to eliminate the hassle and risk to you, I have used and can recommend Quality Piano Moving (773.455.6956) or Specialty Movers (773.384.4451).
FOR RENT: Italian Single Manual Harpsichord
Boasting an exceptionally well-defined sound and unparalleled projecting power, this large single-manual Italian harpsichord is ideally suited for playing with ensembles large and small. Made in 1984 by the highly respected builder David Sutherland, this instrument is modeled after 18th century Florentine harpsichords of the Cristofori/Ferrini workshop. This is my personal instrument, so rental availability may be limited during periods of high usage.
Compass: 56 notes, GG - d3
Disposition: 2 x 8'. Pitch: Transposing A=440/415 Hz
Rental fee: please inquire.
