A selection of 12 pieces from the most famous Keyboard notebook in the history of music, presented here as part of the Hal Leonard Student Piano Library.
The Anna Magdalena Notebook is a particularly intimate and unusual set of didactic pieces, composed by J.S. Bach as practice material for his second wife. Such a notebook would have been commonplace in any musical household, containing a large variety of music often transcribed by the students themselves, and from which an initial repertoire would develop. By its very nature, this set of pieces has become a vital source of information regarding Keyboard teaching in the Baroque era, and especially regarding the methods and thinking behind one of the world's greatest composers.
This special selection, suitable for any early intermediate Piano student, has been edited by Christos Tsitsaros, who performs all 12 pieces on the accompanying CD.
