Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Although this is admittedly a highly specialized study, it is one that should not be neglected by musical historians, or by pianists who are interested in improving their understanding of the music of the past." Notes

"Rowland has done a great service by gathering together all of the 'hard' evidence: quotations from treatises, descriptions of performances, students' accounts, and musical examples with composers' pedal markings. Pianists will find much that is fascinating ..." Early Keyboard Journal
