David Sutherland Harpsichord Maker
I have been building and servicing harpsichords and other early keyboard instruments in Ann Arbor, Michigan since 1974. In recent years I have investigated the early history of the piano and its inventor, Bartolomeo Cristofori, and I have made replicas of Cristofori's 1726 piano and of a piano by Gottfried Silbermann (1749). Research for these projects has resulted in several articles, and is on-going. I welcome feedback about this web site and its contents; feel free to e-mail me using the contact page. Thank you for visiting!
