The harpsichord was widely used in
Renaissance and Baroque music. During the late 18th century, it gradually
disappeared from the musical scene with the rise of the piano. But in the 20th
century, it made a resurgence, being used in historically informed performance
of older music, in new (contemporary) compositions, and in popular culture.
