Item Number: NX.PAS1024

On a copy of a 1730 Cristofori-Ferrini Pianoforte Linda Nicholson demonstrates the qualities of these earliest of pianofortes. The repertoire, sonatas from Platti, Paradisi et al., all composed between 1720-1754, is perfect for this instrument, whose sound is much closer to the harpsichord than the later pianofortes, despite its dynamic abilities.
