Tannenberg Clavichord Discovery!!!!!

I was fortunate enough to be present at the Moravian Historical Society in Nazareth, PA when Laurence Libin, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, made the fabulous discovery that the clavichord in Nazareth was signed and dated by David Tannenberg in 1761. This makes it the only known Tannenberg clavichord, and his only signed instrument. (If you don't count his unique capital Ds on his organ pipes.) An unbelievable discovery, and I was fortunate and feel privileged to have witnessed this historic event!
