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, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Portugal. New to this edition is a chapter on performance practice by the editor, which addresses current issues in the interpretation and revival of this music.

Bookshelf staple for any serious pianist or historical keyboardist
10 September 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
This series on the history of keyboard (and piano) music should be an essential part of any pianist's library. They are individual chapters written by different authors, most of whom are experts in that particular area. Subjects include not only important composers of keyboard music, but also aspects of performance practice and the development of keyboard instruments throughout history. I highly recommend them, not only as textbooks for a course on piano literature, but also for historical information about the cultural contexts and development of the modern piano.

Nice Chunk of Information

Very well written. Although the reader must have a little knowledge on Music Theory and Music terms.
