This brand-new series is intended as a guide to the keyboard music of the 16th to 19th centuries for pupils of the piano and the harpsichord, as well as of other early keyboard instruments. Each volume contains pieces by well-known and lesser-known composers from one country or region. The main purpose of the series is to extend the repertoire and stylistic knowledge of both pianists and harpsichordists while also presenting fine pieces and typical genres based on original sources. Our edition retains the performance indications of the composers' manuscripts and contemporary editions. Each volume includes:

- suggestions for stylistically appropriate performance both on the piano and on period instruments

- suggested elaborated versions of some pieces and excerpts

- a fold-out list of ornamentation signs and the composers' own tables of ornamentation signs

- biographies of the composers and the sources of the pieces

- translations of foreign-language performance indications.

The two volumes devoted to French keyboard music includes close to 50 showy and relatively easy works - preludes, dances, suites, rondeaux, and character pieces - from the early 16th until the late 18th century (ordered chronologically).

This publication is printed on high-quality, age-resistant paper that is produced in an environmentally-friendly, climate-neutral manner using renewable raw materials.
