This facsimile of an original by Nicolas-Antoine Lebegue is part of our French classical music collection. Edition : s. d. =1687. Presentation by Marie Demeilliez : Biography - Le second livre de clavecin - Bibliography (Description of conserved editions) - Manuscript versions and Concordances table - Table od contents. This facsimile reproduces the copy in the British Library, the only complete exemplar. A modern edition, already dated, is based on the incomplete copy from the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. This second book of harpsichord pieces is interesting for several reasons: the very typical pieces of the suite are classical models most of them are of limited difficulty and therefore playable by young pupils these pieces date from a key period during which both pre-classical ornamentation (see the book of motets by Lebegue) and the emerging classical ornamentation were used. The preface by M. D. is remarkably well documented. The engraving is very clear. Anne Fuzeau Productions have published all the period editions of Lebegue's works: 3 organ books, 2 harpsichord books, one book of motets.
Collection supervised by the musicologist Jean Saint-Arroman, professor at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse of Paris and at the CEFEDEM Ile de France (Training Centre for Music Teachers). He is the author of the majority of our prefaces and has also been involved in library searches.
