Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jacob Kirkman was a member of one of the most important harpsichord builder dynasties of his time. Even Charles Burney was full of praise of him. Kirkman’s family was also able to master the transition to the Fortepiano with a series of innovations. In addition to instrument-making, Jacob Kirkman was also an accomplished composer, as is evident on this recording of his lessons and sonatas. Medea Bindewald is a professional harpsichord player who specializes in the performance of seventeenth and eighteenth century keyboard music. Ever since she heard the sound of her grandmother’s harpsichord as a child, her mission has been to make audiences aware of the beauty and richness of the repertoire available for the instrument.
