Harpsichord F major toccata


Recommended Posts

 Hi, I wrote this piece last fall, it was modeled after Froberger and Buxtehude but might have more of a renaiisance/ flemish/ french feel in places (and i've since dedicated my musical existence to the 'virginalist" school and the 16th century keyboard practice).....because i recorded with an ipad a few feet from the treble end of the harpsichord, the bass end on this recording lacks volume and it's difficult to hear what i wrote in many places..just something to keep in mind.  i played it in a recital in december and i have both a handwritten score and an engraved score if anyone's interested.

here's what i think is the "final" typeset score, although i have a handwritten score as well because i prefer to handwrite.  I'm not sure if this score is the final one, i have a couple pdfs of it because i kept correcting errors with the engraver.  I also have a clavichord rendition that i played here, although it's very slightly different than the harpsichord one :

My kudos, both for making this piece and for playing it yourself, you are a pro! 
I also encourage you to upload both versions of the score, I would really like to read it while listening to the video. The clavichord one sounds good as well but I prefer the first one.

Kind regards ^^!

here's the typed-up score, and the handwritten score on pages 7-13 of the uploaded file.  The typed-up one might be more accurate since i made some corrections since scanning the handwritten score, but i really prefer to play from a handwritten score if it's my music.

The handwritten score is something more personal and one (I suppose) gets used to its own writing style. Thank you for sharing, I will dig into it.

Kind regards ^^!
