    I haven’t read the article, but I don’t agree with the sentiment. At least, I don’t think that it’s harder to record a harpsichord than a piano and it’s probably easier than a church organ. There are heaps of truthful, and beautiful,
    harpsichord recordings.

    piano ain't easy to record either. DG is still in the early learning stage.

    According to this:

    - Most people don't actually know how good a harpsichord can sound. It is particularly hard to record and an instrument ifor which the acoustical environment it is played in is very critical...

    When it comes to difficulty in recording, could it be because of the harpsichord's low volume and the piano's percussiveness?

    According to this:

    - The harpsichord is an interesting instrument, challenging to play and difficult to record well...Mic’ing a harpsichord like a piano does
    not work.

    It ain't easy to play! ;-)

    DG is still in the early learning stage.

    Doesn't this depend more on the
    producer and the engineers than
    on the label?

    It could be because the harpsichord is a right-wing instrument
    and the engineers are left-wing; though I thought I heard
    good sounding recordings of harpsichord, I must be a fool.
