In his day, Johann Jacob Froberger (1617-1667) was a towering figure who created a style of composition uniting influences from Italy , France and England . His music continued to be published seventy years after his death and was evidently still being played after 1750.

Today there is a growing awareness that his only peer in 17th-century keyboard music was Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck.

The complete edition of Froberger's music is scheduled to encompass six bilingual volumes (German and English). Each volume contains a critical report and a detailed preface with sections on the scope and subdivision of the edition, the editorial method, performance practice (including a discussion of contemporary instruments and ornamentation) and biographical notes.

Volume 5 will contain a complete catalogue of Froberger's music, the Froberger-Werkverzeichnis .FbWVnumbers have been added to the pieces in each volume.

Now, for the first time, keyboard players have access to every work attributed to Froberger , including a large number of pieces discovered by the editor, as well as alternative versions and pieces of doubtful authenticity.

- Reliable, state-of-the-art complete edition
- Scholarly-critical text
- Detailed explanatory notes (German/English)

  • December 24, 2017 Froberger better than Bach?

    I am of the personal belief that Froberger rivals J.S. Bach in terms of musicality, creativity and output. As Barenreiter scholars will tell you Froberger’s standing in the arena of the “greatest composers” is ever increasing as more of his music comes to light. Again, I share this...

    opinion. I have enjoyed playing Froberger more than I ever did Bach. Froberger’s Toccatas and Partitas paved the way for Bach, who, in many cases seems to have learned well from his own studies of Froberger. As usual, Barenreiter does a great job in scholarship and quality of book, however expensive. It’s worth the financial sacrifice.
