I shouldn’t forget: a new CD with selections from F. Couperin’s second and third Ordres and the entire eighth Ordre has been released worldwide now.
The info at the label TYXart here.
The instrument is a M. Sko. 5-octave French Double from 1980 (no. 50), obviously somewhat too late for Couperin, but that’s what I’ve got, and I love this instrument… some people on the harpsichord facebook group guesstimated that this is a twin to the so-called “1755 Lefebvre” (no. 55 from around 1982, an instrument that nobody seems to be able to not mention), but no. 55 was conceived a while later than mine and has not much to do with it (also a smaller keyboard range), other than that the soundboard comes from the same tree.
