Death of a harpsichord kingmain
The death has been announced of Maurice Cochrane, one of the finest harpsichord and early keyboard technicians. Maurice was the quiet but essential presence behind hundreds of recordings and thousands of concerts given by baroque orchestras, ensembles and soloists. That he was named on so many LPs and CDs was testament to the respect in which his skills were held.
Maurice was married to the harpsichordist Jill Severs. Two of their daughters are professional musicians.
