Overview

Keyboard Music Before 1700 begins with an overview of the development of keyboard music in Europe. Then, individual chapters by noted authorities in the field cover the key composers and repertory before 1700 in England, France, Germany and the Netherlands, Italy, and Spain and Portugal. New to this edition will be a chapter on performance practice by the editor, which will address current issues in the interpretation and revival of this music. Additionally, all essays will include updated bibliographies and new information. The book is ideal for a course focusing on the history of keyboard music or a unit in a pre-18th-century music on the keyboard works of the era. Plus, students and scholars will find it an excellent resource summarizing current research.
