Keyboard Instruments
Noted for its balance and depth, Yale's collection of keyboard instruments is unsurpassed in the world. The Collection's holdings comprise nearly a hundred examples, including organs, clavichords, harpsichords, spinets, virginals, and pianos from the workshops of the most important makers representing all the major regional schools over a span of three centuries. Over half of the keyboard instruments on display have been restored to playing condition and are regularly featured in the live performances and demonstrations that take place in the fine acoustics of the second floor gallery.
