Johann Jacob Froberger (1616-1667) is considered the foremost German composer of keyboard music before Bach. He had studied with Frescobaldi and developed his own personal idiom that combined aspects of Italian, German and French stylistic features. His works strongly influenced Louis Couperin in France and those German keyboard composers leading up to Bach. All his extant music, with the exception of a couple of motets, are for keyboard.

Vartolo's scholarly notes are included in the booklet and an expanded version of those notes is viewable at [...] as well.

Froberger is sometimes thought to be the creator of the partita, or keyboard suite, with its collection of dances (e.g.
