Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"... a fascinating overall impression of the day-to-day concerns and working environment of a professional musician of the late 17th century." --American Recorder

This volume presents Muffat's texts along with variants from his own editions in other languages. Wilson's highly readable supplementary materials make this a useful work for theorists, historians, and performers. The book is particularly enlightening on differences between French and German practice. Treats pitch, ornamentation, bowing, and more.
