Archimedes Ramond (1952–1997) — Ostinato Toccata (1991) for harpsichord

Archimedes Ramond (1952–1997) was born in New York City to Greek parents and lived most of his life in Sri Lanka where he worked as a teacher of English and music at a missionary school. He composed avocationally in his spare time, producing about 50 pieces for various musical forces, almost entirely compositions for his students.

The composer wrote the following about this piece: "Ostinato Toccata (1991) was written for my student Perry Kup for his graduation recital. The larger the harpsichord the better!"

The extended Mietke harpsichord model allows for the creation of an entirely imaginary (yet effective) instrument with 16' and 8' stops on both manuals (which can then be coupled).
