The Essential Baroque Collection

Books | Piano

Publisher: Chester Music
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
A sumptuous selection of the very best Keyboard music of the Baroque era by composers ranging from Henry Purcell to J.S. Bach and beyond, all presented in one superb volume for the solo Piano.

The music of the Baroque is characterised by innovation and invention, both in the compositions of the great courts and of the church. With a melting pot of styles reaching back to the complex polyphony of the Renaissance, while simultaneously pushing forwards towards the diatonic elegance of the later Classical era, it is no surprise that such masterpieces as Pachelbel's Canon In D and Handel's Zadok The Priest are as popular today as ever.

Every piece in this anthology is rich in heritage, and familiar to the ears of music lovers the world over. Take this opportunity to transform your repertoire - the music has been expertly adapted to appeal to the intermediate soloist whilst retaining all the beauty and character of the original works. There's simply no better way to discover the music of the masters.

        Plenty to get the teeth into in this collection of many well-known items. I would rate difficulty of pieces as intermediate or above though there are some less challenging.
        Handel, wonderful though his music is,is over-represented in this album in my opinion.
