    The Lautenwerk and JSBach...

    Oh JSBach - You come alive on the Lautenwerk - Now I am "forced" to acquire this noble among instruments:

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Interesting instrument. I assume related to the Harpsichord

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    Hi Bill,

    Actually, its "intended" relative is the Lute, at least tonally, and one can vary the dynamics by light or heavy touch or everything in between - Now thats something you can't do on a harpsichord.

    Very interesting instrument - hadn't heard of it before, and found info on Wikipedia for the Lautenwerck
    Apparently JS Bach owned 2 of these at the time of his death.

    Lovely piece CD and I can see some resemblance in shape to the lute.

    Hi teddles,

    Indeed - The really excellent Lautenwerck makers can build you one in many different forms.
