Summary
"How did Baroque music sound to its contemporaries? What did they say about its style and performance as that long and eventful period unfolded? Here is a book which brings together many of the answers and draws conclusions of great practical interest to musicians and audiences of today. How can we determine suitable tempi, rhythm, or dynamics from a notation which included few indications of these primary necessities? From the music itself, of course; but we need all the help that scholars can give us. Out of the teeming abundance and confusion of the contemporary evidence, Robert Donington has chosen, organized, and interpreted just that essential material which the modern musician needs to guide his own interpretive decisions. This book is not only a scholar's summary but a musician's testament. Performers may look here for an authentic grounding, while the enthusiastic amateur will be treated to an insight into that spirit of adventure which commends Baroque music so strongly to our generation." -- Back cover
