Portada
Musica Dulce, 1998 - 115 páginas
Designed for use at the keyboard, the book combines technique for harpsichord touch with guidelines for historically informed performance of Baroque music.This manual works with or without a teacher, to help harpsichordists achieve musically expressive performances. For 'Hands on practice," the book contains 30 short "Bach/Ricci" teaching pieces, and other pieces by J. S. Bach, The Couperins and George Bohm. Clear, expansive suggestions for playing these examples make up the bulk of this work. There is also a complete bibliography and 3 appendices. Author Nancy Metzger performs the examples and pieces from the book on the cassette. Many individuals, teachers and librarians helped to make the first edition of this book a clear success. Now the 2nd Edition is garnering praise also. Laurette Goldberg, venerable harpsichordist and teacher, wrote the Foreword in which she says: "This valuable volume now makes accessible the secrets of the harpsichord's expressive possibilities." Dr. Larry Palmer's review in The Diapason says: "Whether one proceeds from beginning to end of this well organized method, or picks and chooses from the pedagogically sound examples, Nancy Metzger's book will aid immensely in the journey toward artistic expression at the harpsichord."
