A look in the collection of Jos van Immerseel

It is no secret that Jos van Immerseel cherishes a deep passion for historical keyboard instruments. Over the years, a number of magnificent examples have come into his life – and stayed there! Van Immerseel’s collection, housed in a workshop/music library near Bruges, now comprises a wide range of original and reconstructed instruments: from harpsichord to Hammond organ and from clavichord to concert grand, together covering 200 years of keyboard history.
