Wanda Landowska and the Revival of the Harpsichord
I’m in the middle of a very exciting adventure in Washington, D.C. The official reason is to do research at the Library of Congress on Wanda Landowska and the Revival of the Harpsichord. Wanda was the topic of my Ph.D. dissertation back in 1990 and at that time I was aware that a lot more material existed on this topic.
In 2004, Landowska’s lifelong companion died and finally in 2008, 110 boxes of archival materials about Wanda arrived at the Library of Congress. Today I was there for 8 hours and only got through two of them! Tomorrow I’ll go back and hope to get through at least two more. If there is something in particular you’d like for me to take a peek at, please let me know ASAP.
The pictures are from some tourist activites I did yesterday with my daughter and son-in-law. You’ll recognize the Lincoln Memorial in the background.
