Georg Joseph Vogler: Pièces e Clavecin (1798) and 32 Präludien (1806)

Item# Sheet Music A-R C24

Product Description

Edited by Floyd K. Grave. Abbé Vogler reveals a complex and adventurous personality in these two sets of keyboard music. While Pièces de clavecin features textural novelty in variations on melodies purportedly of Scandinavian, Russian, African, and Chinese origin, 32 Präludien (designed for either organ or piano and supplied with optional pedal parts) blends echoes of current chamber and theater styles with far-reaching excursions into realms of chromatic harmony and motivic elaboration. 128 pages
