A practical manual for the performer, this concise volume by an expert in the field also presents an authoritative history of the instrument. It imparts basic facts about the harpsichord, describes techniques of music making, and surveys the repertoire from the 16th century through modern times - all in a clear coherent and highly readable style. Valuable suggestions relating to technique include pointers for mastering the basic touch, fingering, articulation and phrasing, rhythm and tempo. The book also features recommendations for making the most of ensemble playing and maintaining the instrument.
