The performers perspective can be the audience perspective too...

Examples from three different perspectives. The first came about because the harpsichordpiece was part of a chamber music concert and the participants needed eyecontact (ortf-ish). The second is a harpsichord recital with the side of the instrument towards the audience (A/B). The third is from a chamber music concert with a more distant perspective (ortf-ish + mic on harpsichord).

Mics almost looking down on the instrument from above the players right sholder. Lid removed.

Another instrument. Lid removed.

There are two churches, two players and two different instruments.

( samples removed/L )
