ABRSM Piano 2013 & 20145 
In the Baroque Era, the term “clavier” referred to all keyboard instruments: virginal, clavichord, harpsichord, fortepiano, and others. Bärenreiter’s “Baroque” Piano Album presents a representative selection of the major forms of Baroque clavier music from England , Italy , France and Germany .

The anthology is divided into these four countries and illustrated with pictures of historical instruments to convey an impression of music making in the country concerned.

The volume begins with the Italian composer Girolamo Frescobaldi, whose keyboard works exemplify the stylistic transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque.

It then moves on to the English virginalists and the French clavecinistes and ends with the epochal of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Apart from traits which prevailed in each of these countries, piano pupils will learn about the various stages of the Early High and Late Baroque period as well as about the major musical genres, from dance to fugue.

Special care was taken in the selection of the pieces to ensure that they could be played on the modern piano.

Since Baroque ornaments must be executed differently for each composer, practical suggestions are included in the musical text. Reliable fingering has been added to make the volume ideal for use in piano lessons.


- Representative overview of the major styles in Baroque clavier music
- 44 easy-to-play pieces
- Colour illustrations of historical keyboard instruments
- Musical text includes suggestions for ornaments
- Reliable fingering
