Hear The Music
Instruments of the Orchestra
Naxos, The World's Leading Classical Music Label
An early keyboard instrument consisting of strings stretched across an oblong wooden box, and a brass wedge or tangent. When the key is struck, the tangent rises and strikes the string, causing it to make the sound, which is very soft.
