Baroque improvisation
on: April 05, 2022, 01:43:49 PM
Anyone have any tips for me to start improvising in baroque style. I've tried partimento and figured bass and stuff and I've found that they're not conducive to improvisation.

I'm curious about the book. What did it teach you or promise, and what results did you get from that?

I have sent you a private message about someone who might shed some light on that for you.
