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.

    Anyone who's been beating their heads against Bach will find that the effort has been worthwhile. The selection in this anthology will expand their appreciation of Baroque keyboard pieces and for the most part, prove a bit easier than Bach to get one's fingers around. The accompanying DVD...

    cuts to the chase, explaining important Baroque performance practices and providing a glimpse into most of this music's origins in dance. Highly recommended.
