The Anthology of Baroque Keyboard Music is paired with the DVD Performance Practices in Baroque Keyboard Music for a comprehensive look at the literature and performing conventions of the Baroque era. The comb binding creates a lay-flat book that is perfect for study and performance. On the DVD, Dr. Hinson performs music from the Anthology, and relates invaluable information on basic touches, articulations, dynamics and ornamentation that will help the performer create a more historically-informed performance. Also on this DVD is a lecture on the history of Baroque dance and the relationship between dance and music, with nine of the most popular court dances performed to Dr. Hinson's keyboard accompaniment by dancers in Baroque costume.
