Concerto grosso arrangements of Geminiani's opus 1 violin sonatas by Francesco Geminiani( )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Avison was the leading advocate of the Italian concerto-grosso style in England during the eighteenth century. A pupil of Francesco Geminiani and a friend to many other Italian musicians who immigrated to England during this period, Avison wrote more than fifty works in the genre, including his well-known orchestral transcriptions of Domenico Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas, and he was happy to assume the role of the genre's staunchest defender. Avison's arrangements of Geminiani's Sonatas for Violin and Basso Continuo, op. 1 (1716) were unknown to us until 2002, when they were discovered in the second of two of his workbooks that reappeared after being hidden for more than two hundred years. These works represent a significant addition not only to the repertoire and reputation of Avison, but also to our understanding of the influence of the Italian concerto-grosso style in England during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries." --
Six concerti grossi by Francesco Scarlatti( )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The list of Italian violinist-composers who settled in the British Isles during the eighteenth century includes Pietro Castrucci, Francesco Geminiani, Felice Giardini, Francesco Barsanti and a member of one of the most renowned musical families of Italy, Francesco Scarlatti. The younger brother of the illustrious oratorio and opera composer Alessandro Scarlatti, and therefore the uncle of the great harpsichord composer Domenico Scarlatti, Francesco Scarlatti left few traces of his life and career. The majority of his previously known compositions consisted of vocal works and only one instrumental piece, a sinfonia in C major. The existence of the concerti grossi of this edition was unknown until 2000, when they were discovered in one of the two workbooks of Charles Avison that reappeared after being hidden for more than two hundred years. The concertos were probably written in London at some point after Francesco Scarlatti moved to England in 1719 and represent a significant addition to his total output. They also enhance our appreciation and understanding of the musical activities of all the members of the Scarlatti family, and provide further insights into the reception of Italian musicians and the Italian concerto grosso in England during the eighteenth century." --

Johann Nepomuk Hummel : a musician's life and world by Mark Kroll( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Johann Nepomuk Hummel: A Musician's Life and World is the first English-language study of this important composer and performer. Thirteen chapters focus on different aspects of Hummel's life, music, and career, such as his family and early years, his experiences living under the regime of the Habsburg monarchy, and his personal and musical relationships with important composers of the classical and romantic periods, including Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schumann, Liszt, and Chopin. Mark Kroll provides a survey of Hummel's legacy, placing his life and work within the context of the social, political, economic, and cultural transformations of the time. Numerous musical examples are also included. An appendix providing the original-language version of all translations, an exhaustive bibliography, and an annotated list of Hummel's works complete this invaluable treatise."--Jacket

Playing the harpsichord expressively : a practical and historical guide by Mark Kroll( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The art of expressive harpsichord playing was lost when the instrument was replaced by the piano in the nineteenth century. Despite the great strides in harpsichord performance and building made during the last 100 years, the full expressive potential of the instrument has not yet been realized, or sometimes even acknowledged by professionals or amateurs. This book reveals the depth of expression that is possible on the harpsichord, and teaches the performer how to achieve it. Previous books devoted to playing the instrument have either been written for amateurs and beginners with little or no experience on the harpsichord, or they take a scholarly approach. This resource is written with a different goal in mind: teaching the art of expressive harpsichord playing to those who have had experience on the instrument, and also to pianists and organists who love the repertoire, and want to play it on the keyboard instrument for which it was composed. Presented together with quotes from the most important primary sources on the instrument, the book contains more than 100 musical examples in an easily-accessible format and one of the most comprehensive bibliographies available [Publisher description]

Keyboard concerto in B-flat major, op. 2 by Carl Ludwig Junker( )

10 editions published in 2017 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pastor, critic, and writer by profession, Carl Ludwig Junker today is far better known for his books, articles, and published letters than for his musical compositions. As one of the most interesting and perceptive commentators and theorists of the late eighteenth century, Junker provided valuable information about contemporary musicians and music making during his lifetime. Junker also wrote twenty-four symphonies (now lost), thirteen piano pieces, and several songs. The concerto presented in this edition, opus 2, was published by Bossler in 1782. As Junker's only surviving concerto, it enriches our understanding and appreciation of the early piano concerto, a genre that would find its full realization in the hands of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven." --
