A harpsichord from the Kasimoff-Blüthner Piano Company on Larchmont Boulevard will be played at a concert at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel on Thurs., Aug. 31, at 8 p.m. The L’Ermitage Foundation is hosting the event.

The 1963 Neupert harpsichord was imported by Helga Kasimoff and her late husband. “We think it’s the most recorded, most traveled and most heard harpsichord in the world,” the couple’s son, Kyril Kasimoff, told us. The “historic and famous” instrument has been featured in numerous films and TV shows, and is a favorite of performers and composers alike, he added.

The August concert will feature pianist Nathan Lewis and cellist Ruslan Biryukov in a performance that includes three Italian  Baroque sonatas. It will take place in the hotel’s grand ballroom at 11461 Sunset Blvd., Bel Air. For tickets visit lermitagefoundation.org
