The Clavinova and Summer Music
by Music Director Douglas Starr
One of St. Paul's most versatile musical assets is a digital keyboard branded "Clavinova"-- it's the instrument pictured above. Most of you have heard this instrument and, most recently, Doug has used it to perform music for harpsichord. The versatility of the Clavinova is derived from its use of sound-sampled technology, the amazingly accurate electronic impersonation of actual acoustic sounds. For example, when used as a harpsichord, the Clavinova plays the digital image of the actual acoustic sound of the harpsichord that was pre-recorded and electronically converted. Rather than detailing a description of sound sampled technology, we invite you to simply enjoy it.
