This is an integrated collection of updated and expanded essays, some of them endorsed by leading harpsichordists. Only a few chapters are specific for the harpsichord: most of the book applies to all the Baroque keyboard instruments. Several colour figures are included, as well as musical examples from well-known Baroque works.
Thorough guidance is provided about ornamentation, articulation, tempi, registration, sesquialter rhythms, notes inégales and further topics that have been found to be useful to the modern performer of Baroque keyboard music, whether amateur, advanced student or professional player.
