Harpsichord Technique: A Guide to Expressivity

Post by isseau »

Nancy Metzger's "Harpsichord Technique: A Guide to Expressivity" is remarkable book, unfortunately, is no longer published. It would be very nice if someone has shared it with the public.

Does anyone have this book ?

I'd be interested in this as well. Most of the links I've found are not particularly helpful, requiring sign up to an (eventually) paid service. I did see one quoting $2000, which struck me as a trifle extreme. It does appear to be out of print, though...

This may be somewhat untimely but I've located a copy of Nancy Metzger's Harpsichord Technique: A Guide to Expressivity on Abebooks.com

Would have bought it but couldn't afford it -- 145. plus 3 something shipping.
