The central significance of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562-1621) for the evolution of baroque"clavier music"can hardly be overestimated. Yet all the currently available editions of his works stand in need of revision. Our new scholarly-critical performance edition, prepared by the experienced editor Siegbert Rampe , closes this gap. It is the first complete edition of Sweelinck's keyboard works to distinguish between"works of secure authenticity","works of uncertain authenticity"and"works of questionable authenticity". It is also the first to present alternative readings in synoptic form and to separately reproduce variant versions.

The bilingual edition (German and English) is scheduled to appear in four volumes and incorporates the latest findings of musical scholarship. Each volume contains a critical report, a catalogue of sources, and a de tailed preface covering not only the volume's scope, layout and editorial technique, but also performance practice, ornamentation and Sweelinck's biography.

- Definitive complete Urtext edition
- Based on the latest findings of scholarship
- Detailed critical notes in German and English

    Unless one has an urgent need to add to their collection work of Schiedemann’s teacher, then I would have to say pass on this one. And while Barenreiter is always excellent in their Urtext editions, and this book is no exception, I still maintain that the very composition of...

    Sweelinck’s work is primitive in the sense of its over-extended measures, and innumerable 16th-32nd notes ala Frescobaldi and Gabrieli which are very hard to play within the context of modern rhythmic practice. Most of the notes are meant as ornamentation, but are written in such a way as to render them almost meaningless when one plays on an actual organ, where too rapid notes played result in a mish-mosh of sound.
