Brahms mastered lute tablature and made transcriptions, writes Hugh Wood in a 2012 CD booklet of Brahms's Deutsches Requiem (Gardiner). What I'd like to know is, are there traces of lute music to be found in Brahms's music? Anyone?

After almost a year of hard work and many technical help from others, the Early Keyboard Instrument Network is finally launched.
http://www.earlykeyboard.net
Please visit. I consider this as one of the most important life work that I have created. It has just about every single features of a website portal about harpsichords, clavichords, forte-pianos, and everything else that is Pre-Romantic Era.

Musical instruments at the V&A [Jan. 29th, 2010|11:32 am]

There is an online petition, "Security for the Victoria & Albert Museum instruments". This is the text of the petition:

"We the undersigned request that attention be paid to the collection of antique instruments in the possession of the Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington, London, with reference to the proposed removal from public display on 22/02/10. We request that all efforts be made to prevent the instruments being put into storage, that, should storage be unavoidable, it be for a finite, agreed period, and that the secure fate of the instruments be decided before the display
is dismantled, delaying the 'decanting' of Gallery 40, if needed, to protect and preserve these irreplaceable specimens."


Musical instruments can take so much damage when not stored properly and this causes great loss to our cultural heritage.... I've seen the ruins of many wonderful instruments, instruments which have lived throughout the centuries and two World Wars and only recently took damage from improper storage or attempts of "conservation". Storage is a great problem and should not done hastily or without spending great, great care on all of the factors. Not to mention the loss to the public if the musical instruments are taken from display.


Here are some links to the exhibits of the V&A (including audio examples):

Lute, about 1540, Bologna (Italy). Museum no. 194-1882
Harpsichord, 1574. Museum no. 6007-1859
