Jacob Kirkman was a member of one of the most important harpsichord builder dynasties of his time. Even Charles Burney was full of praise of him. Kirkman‘s family was also able to master the transition to the Fortepiano with a series of innovations. Medea Bindewald presents some of the instruments from Kirkman with compositions by Jacob Kirkman.
