Self I'm guitar player and baroque music lover. After I started to read (study) Donington's book I was surpised how bad and wrong I was playing Bach, Kapseberger, Sanz, Murcia and other baroque composer. And I have conservatory studies!!! Even tecnichal problem with the instrument has been solved. It is so important to know how to frase well in order to make the playing enyojable. The book also gives you a lot of literature to continue digging in the baroque era. You just want to know more and more. Nothing better to discover that you really don't know anything to let you feel the hunger of knowledge.

This book is a streamlined version of Donington's "The Interpretation of Early Music," containing the most essential excerpts from primary sources on aspects of Baroque performance practice. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting to enter the world of early music performance, since it points you towards all of the best sources and is laid out in a highly logical manner which makes it a very practical reference.

I bought this as a text to a class on Baroque Performance Practice. Along with brilliant lectures from my Professor Dr. Timothy Howard, this book was exactly what it took to bring a rounded, informed, and accurate base on which to interpret my Baroque repetoire. Highly recommend, the beginning and end of Baroque interpretation.

Format: Paperback
This is a good source to get anyone started on their way performing in a "period" manner. The only drawback is more recent research and advances in style make large portions of this book seem dated and even quaint.
