Twelve of today's most distinguished scholar-performers present essays on Baroque keyboard music. Topics include the place of the keyboard in concerted music, comparative teaching methods, studies of the repertoire of J.S. Bach and his sons, and writing in the later eighteenth century (including Mozart) and on matters of repertoire and performance practice. The volume concludes with a new arrangement for keyboard of Bach's D minor Violin Partita, published here for the first time.
