Even though the harpsichord is the ideal instrument for an authentic interpretation of its repertoire, playing Baroque keyboard music is also an important part and parcel of the culture and art of the modern pianist. This book consists of an integrated collection of essays on Baroque interpretation, some of them endorsed by leading performers, and adapted here for the modern pianist, whether amateur, advanced student or professional player.
A complete history of stringed keyboard instruments is included, followed by thorough guidance about Baroque interpretation: ornamentation, articulation, tempi, dynamics, rhytmical alteration and French dances. Several colour figures are included, as well as musical examples from well-known Baroque works.
