about

This book sets forth the provocative theories of a musician who has been called the outstanding harpsichordist of this century. The late Ralph Kirkpatrick reveals here his approach to a deeper comprehension of music, showing how his methods are applied to the preludes and fugues of the Well-Tempered Clavier of J.S. Bach.
“This book is brilliant and important.”—Clavier
“All keyboardists performing classical repertoire can greatly benefit from Kirkpatrick’s scholarship, dry wit, and stubborn dedication.”—Keyboard
“That Mr. Kirkpatrick’s extraordinarily perceptive mind knew the subject matter thoroughly is beyond dispute. . . Valuable insights into the analysis, teaching and performance of all Western music, especially Bach’s monumental Well-Tempered Clavier.”—Arthur Lawrence, The American Organist
“We are fortunate to have this book by Ralph Kirkpatrick. . . From it we gain insight into the musical mind of one of the outstanding performers of our century.”—The Music Review
