Baroque Keyboard Fingering: A Method, eBook
This is a traditional-fingering method for students and performers of Baroque keyboards.
Scales and other passages are resolved with 54 fingering Rules based on original fingerings from Baroque era sources.
Old-style fingerings are also suggested by the author for many difficult passages in the Baroque keyboard repertoire.
After the first version of 1983, enhanced versions of this Method have received very favourable comments, including an endorsement by the late Igor Kipnis.
This 7th revised edition, published in August 2016, is based on decades of studies and practical use in public recitals, and is as always the most comprehensive work in the field, with 176 fingered passages and a bibliography of sources. Bray Baroque has also published the following companions of this eBook:
