Description
This is the first complete edition of the keyboard works of Jean-Philippe Rameau to incorporate all the printed collections of harpsichord music published under his supervision, as well as his clavier arrangement of Les Indes Galantes.

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.

The product images shown are for illustrative purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product, e.g. an image of the full score may illustrate an instrumental part.
