"Tatsuo Takahashi was born in 1952 in Tokyo. His grandfather was a master furniture artisan who lived through the Art Deco period in his youth, and his two uncles are also furniture artisans of the highest level.
In such an environment, Takahashi was able to develop woodworking skills and an intimacy with the spirit of wood from a young age. He took interest in the harpsichord as a 17 year-old high school student, and gradually began researching the instrument. He was only 20 years old when he finished building his first harpsichord, during his days as a student at the Musashi Institute of Technology. Since then, he has continued to build harpsichords and clavichords using his own unique methods. " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
