Quick Overview

Two selections from Rochberg's musical treatise. BOOK OF CONTRAPUNTAL PIECES FOR KEYBOARD. As in its model, J.S. Bach's ART OF FUGUE, these pieces seek an intensive exporation of the art of counterpoint. To examine it in detail, revealing the intricacies and excitement of the contrapuntal craft. The two pair of Preludes and Faghettas, both in triple counterpoint, may be performed on any keyboard instrument and like Bach's work, contain few performance indications and no dynamics or phrasing marks. Excellent companion pieces to the piano student's study of Bach, expanding and enriching his musical prowess with a 20th-century perspective of the contrapuntist's craft. For studios, colleges, libraires, professions.
