Playing Baroque Music on the Piano
This is an integrated collection of essays on Baroque interpretation, some of them endorsed by leading performers, and adapted for the player of the modern piano.
After a discussion of the approach to be followed when playing Baroque music on the piano, a complete history of stringed keyboards is included.
The following chapters provide thorough guidance about Baroque interpretation topics: ornamentation, articulation, tempi, dynamics, rhytmical alteration and French dances. These have been found to be useful to the modern pianist, whether amateur, advanced student or professional player.
Several colour figures are included, as well as musical examples from well-known Baroque works.
