Complete Keyboard Works Vol. 3. Les Indes Galantes. Balet, reduit a quatre grand concerts (1735/36)
It includes many new insights into performance practice (e.g. the handling of repeat signs in the original prints) and presents the music entirely in modern clefs. The result is a reliable and unique edition for today’s performers that does full justice to recent findings in historical performance practice. For the first time, all accidentals and expression marks are reproduced exactly as they appear in the sources. All of Rameau’s written comments – a key source on performance practice – are reproduced in the original French with translations into German and English.
Rounding off the edition are instructive facsimiles and a detailed preface in which the editor, the celebrated harpsichordist and conductor Siegbert Rampe, discusses the sources, editorial method, and important aspects of performance.
