It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

"the precision one hears on the harpsichord, ... as it is a derivation of that instrument" WRONG!!!

The Viennese Action forte-piano - an example of of which being what Brautigam plays - is a very successful attempt at producing a much louder clavichord, while retaining the clavichord's tonal simplicity or purity, clarity, and ability to play very quietly.

The double-action piano, and its iron framed successors _are_ the successors to the loud clangorous, jangly (Just ask Chris!) harpsichord.

Bullshit still baffles brains, and ears!

John, I suggest that you search here on fortepianos and my moniker, first.
