Kürt WITTMAYER HARPSICHORD, Wolfratshausen, 1965

After working at Neupert, Kürt Wittmayer started his harpsichord factory in 1929. Shortly thereafter, the demand for harpsichords grew from music institutions, orchestras, professionals and amateurs. To meet these needs, all types of spinets and harpsichords were built. They were distributed worldwide through the finer piano trade. Around 1960 Wittmayer was building about 400 copies a year. Because of this small harpsichord, often referred to as “kleinods”, many music lovers have found their way to baroque music.
