He remained with the Viennese court during the next four years, producing at least one more collection of music, the Libro Quarto of Libro Terzo is now lost. A Hitherto Unrecorded Autograph Manuscript.

In addition to the previously unknown and unsuspected pieces in the autograph, they provide improved texts for several famous but poorly transmitted works; they also promise to shed light on the compositional and reception histories of the music.

This applies especially to three laments for which SA provides concordances to the very faulty texts in Min. Dresden was probably one of the very first cities Froberger visited: It is true that SA is notated somewhat less explicitly than the autograph, lacking a number of necessary ties, dots of prolongation, and even some notes for the inner voices.

It is impossible to prove that keyboard players did something similar. But the present Courante seems to lose its way in measure 11, where a phrase ends prematurely, and the penultimate measure of each half is awkward and unimaginative.

This produces an impression of clarity and, in quick movements, a great deal of energy. Also new are the titles attached to some of the previously known pieces. Other parallelisms involve the cadences at the end of the first half in the Allemande and the Sarabande, and the opening of the froberver half in the Allemande and the Courante.

Klincksieck,39— Should it be more vocal or more instrumental; that is, should downbeats as a rule be preceded by strong articulations as is the rule in modern organ and harpsichord playing?

The spotty transmission of his keyboard music has prevented its importance from being recognized, and one would like to find more works comparable to those preserved in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. It contained more than a hundred volumes of music, including works by Josquin des Prez[3] Samuel Scheidt and Michael Praetoriusas well as pieces by the lesser known Johann Stadenfounder of the Nuremberg school, and Giovanni Valentinithe then-famous Viennese Kapellmeister who later taught Johann Kaspar Kerll.


But it also includes works that probably date from before or after that period, and which may have been written outside the Empire properly defined, including Belgium, Scandinavia, and even England.

Most harpsichordists play this music on instruments or copies that, even if originally built in the seventeenth century, were fundamentally altered in the eighteenth; their ideas about touch, articulation, tempo, and innumerable other aspects of harpsichord performance will have been shaped by a consensus that, rightly or wrongly, has emerged over the frobeeger few decades as to the most effective if not entirely authentic way of playing music by J. Hence it may not be a coincidence that only later sources, notably SA and Min.

Selecting and copying pieces in clear, revised texts would have entailed significant effort and some expense for ink and paperand might have occurred only for specific reasons, such as a response to a frobergsr or for presentation to a prospective patron. In September he arrived in Vienna and demonstrated the arca musurgica to the Emperoran avid amateur musician; he also presented him with Libro Secondoa collection of his own compositions the Libro Primo is now lost.

Nor can it be taken for granted that the groupings and orderings of pieces in the imperial manuscripts had any sort of permanent or definitive status for the composer. Comparison of readings in SA to those listed by Ishii pp.

In Toccata 14 in G major, measure 34, fourth beat, quarter note a’present in the source, is still missing from the transcription, and the last note of measure 35 lower staff is anot f ; hence the editorial flat on the following b is unnecessary it is absent from the concordance in the Mortier print. More often, however, one gets the impression of small changes in rhythm, voice leading, or melody, possibly made at various times.

As he contemplated his mortality—a situation vividly represented by the Meditation A20 —he might have doubted the possibility of passing his musical legacy on to anyone; yet he did not necessarily hold the same view throughout his life. Reilly, On Playing the Flute London: Following the Empress Maria Leopoldine ‘s death in August the court’s musical activities were suspended.

Facsimile pages provide examples of the diverse types of notation used for gigus music, and although the facsimiles should have been sharper and larger, they at least prove that many of the faulty readings have been transcribed accurately. The same discrepancy arises in Suites 11, 16, and 17; this is particularly puzzling since, as noted below, Dl generally seems to give later versions.

The froberver is organized in terms of composers, and by genre within the works of a given composer.


C18, measure 9 g’—f’—e’—e’-flat ; S18, measure 7 c’-sharp—c’ ; and C11, measure 4 a C-major chord on beat 3, that is, adding a natural on bass c instead of correcting treble g” to e”.

Any one of these manuscripts would have constituted the most important Froberger discovery ffroberger a century or more; together they will greatly enrich our understanding of the composer and his works, although not without raising further questions. Ornament signs in the print: As fine as they all are, common to these three recordings, and in general to modern performances of seventeenth-century keyboard music, is their tendency to make the latter sound pretty much like eighteenth-century music as it is currently understood.

A notable feature of these airs is their strophic form, the music being repeated with variations for successive stanzas; the practice is reminiscent of the doubles employed in lute and keyboard music. This hypothesis would not be ruled out by the putative dating of Suites 13 and 27 to the early s see frobergeg.

The triple-time version is metrically homogeneous, entirely lacking the rhythmic subtlety of the duple version. Does this imply pairing of toccata and suite in performance? Views Read Edit View history. The shortening of the second half is achieved by omitting the equivalent of one measure mm. This does not rule out the possibility of sharply articulating certain notes, but it does suggest that the generally clean sort of articulation employed here especially in quick movements would have been a friberger in the seventeenth century.

Anonymous, attributed to Froberger on stylistic and technical grounds. Whether Froberger was responsible for composing all of these movements, or for placing them in suites, has been a recurring question; Dl adds to the repertory of such movements. The structure and style of Froberger’s programmatic works, as well as his allemandes, contributed to the development of the unmeasured prelude through the efforts of Louis Couperin.

Whether Froberger himself used tablature must remain open; variants characteristic of tablature copies, such as octave displacement of individual pitches, occur in surviving tablature copies as well as in scores such as Dl. The inclusion of these ornament signs only in particular movements again points to a pedagogic intention; because the signs are not found in other copies, it is unlikely that they go back to the composer.

Until then, it will be equally idle to devise idiosyncratic numbering systems that unsystematically mingle genuine and doubtful compositions. He plays the quick movements more energetically, but perhaps unduly so in those gigues which are notated in common time.
