Harpsichord Workshop - Jan Bečička & Stanislav Hüttl

The second harpsichord workshop to be established in the Czech Republic bears the name Jan Bečička & Stanislav Hüttl & Petr Šefl. Since its establishment at Hradec Králové in 1997 it has been building top-class copies of harpsichords. The workshop soon undertook the restoration of original historical instruments from the collections of the National Museum in Prague. Due to growing interest in its work and increasing orders, the workshop was obliged to find larger premises and in in 2008 it moved to the picturesque village of Bystřec in the Eagle Mountains. It builds instruments for leading musical institutions, music schools and foremost instrumentalists, as well as for students and beginners on the harpsichord. It regularly attends music festivals, loans instruments and provides a concert service. Foremost Czech and foreign artists have given concerts and made recordings with our instruments. The workshop is fully equipped and performs not only routine repairs but also undertakes extensive restoration projects and the reconstruction of all types of keyboard string instruments, including rare historical originals (see chapter on restoration).
In August 2020 Jan Bečička and Stanislav Hüttl terminated the cooperation with Mr. Petr Šefl and they continue as a harpsichord workshop Jan Bečička & Stanislav Hüttl.
