Luke Arnason wishes to announce a new endeavor to which he welcomes feedback and/or questions from our community. Luke has recently launched a YouTube channel devoted to harpsichord music. The channel, currently in the early stages of development, features two pieces by François Couperin along with a channel trailer. The long-term goal is to make the channel a platform for "vulgarising" the harpsichord that will include the following : harpsichord appreciation tutorials (how does the instrument, and the music written for it, work? What makes great harpsichord pieces great? What should you listen for?); recordings with running visual commentary on elements of interpretation, and discussion on interpretation of the pieces ; recordings of modern harpsichord music designed to attract viewers that have no knowledge of harpsichord repertoire, and to use their curiosity about modern pieces to introduce them to "proper" harpsichord repertoire (first on the list: the Tower of Karazhan from World of Warcraft).
