Concerto No. 1, BWV 1052 by J. S. Bach

Harpsichord
Often, on Sunday mornings, while sipping coffee, contemplating what to write, I listen to music: Beethoven, Mozart, Greig, Wagner, etc. This morning, I listen to a Bach conerto that features wriitem for a harpsichord.

“A harpsichord is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard. It produces sound by plucking a string when a key is pressed. “Harpsichord” designates the whole family of similar plucked keyboard instruments, including the smaller virginals, muselar, and spinet.”

Here’s a link that will usher you to Bach himself; well, it will take you to a web page where you can listen to Harpsichord Concerto No. 1, BWV 1052. Today, the concerto is often played on a piano.

Concerto No. 1, BWV 1052 by J. S. Bach

Like rain –

paniced, driven,
the piano pulses,
like rain

spatting
stone hills,
pummeling

crag, spire,
relentless,
relentless,

each note
exploding
as breaking

drops of rain:
splatter, anger,
pulse, panic –

the rain,
the savage rain.
