  • May 18, 2011 EXCELLENT BOOK

    This is a wonderful, diverse introduction to Baroque keyboard pieces covering style and improvisational techniques. It is arranged cronologically and progressively through the four main European centres of music of the 17th and early 18th centuries. The book is well made, highly recommendable.
