Product description


Giorgio Sanguinettis The art of partimento is a very impressive accomplishment, not only for its groundbreaking effort to sketch the history of this largely uncovered repertory, but also for the very useful list of sources on the companion website and for the beautiful linearity of many of his realizations in the third part of the book. This book will benefit not only keyboardists but also advanced players of the lute and theorbo, at least those who have acquired skills in playing without tablature. Sanguinettis monograph has the potential to enrich deeply the study of harmony, counterpoint and fugue, as it enables the reader to reconstruct a unique and historically founded synthesis between practical playing and theoretical learning, using teaching material from some of the most distinguished masters of the 18th century. ― Peter van Tour, Early Music

This wonderful book explores the rules of this multifaceted compositional shorthand. ― Music Teacher

Sanguinetti's book is a comprehensive and highly organized account of an exceedingly complex musical art. ― David Chapman, Notes
