* Bärenreiter Piano Album

In the Baroque Era, the term “clavier” referred to all keyboard
instruments: virginal,
clavichord, harpsichord, fortepiano, and others. Bärenreiter’s
“Baroque” Piano Album

presents a representative selection of the major forms of Baroque
clavier music from
England, Italy, France and Germany. The anthology is divided into
these four countries and
illustrated with pictures of historical instruments to convey an
impression of music making in
the country concerned.

The volume begins with the Italian composer Girolamo Frescobaldi,
whose keyboard
works exemplify the stylistic transition from the Renaissance to the
It then moves on to the English virginalists and the French
clavecinistes and ends with
the epochal of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Apart from traits which prevailed in each of these countries, piano
pupils will learn about
the various stages of the Early High and Late Baroque period as well
as about the major
musical genres, from dance to fugue.

Special care was taken in the selection of the pieces to ensure that
they could be played
on the modern piano.

Since Baroque ornaments must be executed differently for each
composer, practical
suggestions are included in the musical text. Reliable fingering has
been added to
make the volume ideal for use in piano lessons.
