An idiomatic sequence first heard in measures 14—15 returns twice in inverted form in the second half mm. The first leaf pp. Items appearing in JSCM may be saved and stored in electronic or paper form, and may be shared among individuals for purposes of scholarly research or discussion, but may not be republished in any form, electronic or print, without prior, written permission from the Editor-in-Chief of JSCM. The latter somewhat resembles the early lute doubles in the restrained character of the variation; the other partite are reminscent of the various types of keyboard cantus firmus setting composed in the earlier seventeenth century.

The counterpoint and harmony are very similar to the ricercares and fantasias; however, occasionally scale degrees other than 1 and 5 are used. Its apparently late date makes it clear that it is not one of the autograph collections presumed missing from Vienna the postulated Libri 1 and 3.

Dl gives faulty accidentals but also alternate versions of some passages. The only surviving non-keyboard works by Froberger are two motetsAlleluia! Wandering Gigues Attributed to Froberger Table 3: Van Asperen paragraphs 5. But clearly, evaluation of the new music must await publication. The possibility that the copyist left out a few beats, as in C13, is unlikely unless the double that follows, which has exactly the same structure, was based on a defective copy of the Courante.

All four movements are relatively restrained in style, perhaps less imaginative than the others of SA. This practice is akin to the anticipatione della syllabawhich in effect slurs a short afterbeat, often resolving a dissonance as in a 4—3 cadential suspensionnot to the previous but to the following note.

This hypothesis would not be ruled out by the putative dating of Suites 13 and 27 to the early s see below. There is no manuscript evidence for playing the doubles, present in two of the suites, as varied reprises.

GIGUE TAB by Johann Jakob Froberger @

Rather than suppose that composers persisted in writing triple-time gigues in both duple and triple notation, it makes more sense to assume that the gigue in duple meter was an independent type that continued into the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, with published examples by Kuhnau and Bach.


Moreover, the six toccatas belong to the forberger published in by Bourgeat and also circulating in independent manuscripts in places as scattered as England, France, Sweden, and Vienna. Jacob Adolf Worp, 6 vols. In principle, this is a project that will cheer every scholar and performer of seventeenth-century European music, for the repertory has long needed to be revisited.

David Starke, in his pioneering study, 53 found it useful to designate movements individually, and I will refer, for instance, to the Allemande of Suite 1 as A1, courantes, sarabandes, and gigues being designated accordingly. I wonder in particular about the very common cadence formula in gigur a 4—3 suspension resolves at the last possible moment, the dissonant fourth being written as a dotted note, the resolution third as a mere eighth or sixteenth as throughout S It had already vigue evident to most editors that the omission of one accidental in both SA and Min.

But even if such a hypothesis were plausible—and the attributions are unlikely on stylistic vigue would be virtually unprovable.

It goes without saying that froberged poor text can be played beautifully, and that faulty readings or anachronistic performance practices can be engaging and even musically convincing when used with conviction and originality.

Dl, on the other hand, sometimes ggiue versions that seem to predate the extant autographs. In the allemande of Suite 17, for example, it makes a difference whether or not one restrikes tenor c’ on the third beat of measure 9; restriking the note makes audible the dissonance that arises as the alto moves from e’ to d’ the first edition showed an editorial tie in the tenor. Before proceeding further it will be worth considering how best to refer to these pieces.

The manuscript is kept in the Uppsala University library. The gugue falls roughly aroundwhich marks the beginning of a period from which we rroberger many more detailed treatises and froberter verbal sources, as well as far greater quantities of original instruments and useful iconography. Earlier sources on ornamentation—mostly vocal, but including ornament tables for lute and keyboard books—place great store in accentsoften played before or even straddling the beat; these connect tones rather than emphasizing downbeats.

More frequently one finds extended parallelisms that fall short of complete movements as in Suites 3—5or briefer parallelisms involving memorable turns of phrase or harmonic progressions as in Suite An effective tempo will probably be somewhat slower than that taken here on the basis of eighteenth-century gigues and canaries.

But what this tells us primarily is that it took a while for Froberger to find the distinctive voice that sounds so much more clearly in the better-attributed compositions. The Courante is derived from the Allemande, but although in both movements the first half contains seven measures, the second half of the Allemande is eight measures long, whereas that of the Courante contains only six.


As he contemplated his mortality—a situation vividly represented by the Meditation A20 —he might have doubted the possibility of passing his musical legacy on to anyone; yet he did not necessarily hold the same view throughout his life.

SA includes the six suites also found in the autograph Suites 7—12 ; of these Dl has only Suite 11, which it gives in a distinct version.

His family came from Hallewhere his grandfather Simon lived [1] and his father Basilius — was born. Early version of The fact that Bauyn gives a version of G7 in triple time is not a reason to play the movement that way when it appears in Dl as part of Suite 23, in an early gifue in common time.

Verlet does not seem to have had access to Dl, and SA was unknown at the time her recording was made; her texts appear to be her own.

The entire editorial apparatus of the SA volume appears in both German and a competent English translation, save for a brief list of readings from the manuscript that have been altered in the transcription. But as with Bach it is never clear whether these suffixes represent early, late, or inauthentic versions of a piece, and some numbers seem to be illogically assigned; e.

Johann Friedrich Voss,ch. At some point before he married Anna Schmid —who came from a Schwabian family living in Stuttgart. The last fantasia no. The manuscript dates from Froberger’s final years and may contain his last compositions. The Crisis ftoberger Absolutism in France London: The question is especially urgent in the case of pieces for which we still lack autographs.

The edition was published as Johann-Jakob Froberger: Should gigues notated in common or cut time be played in compound triple meter? On his way back he stopped in Florence and Mantua to show the frobrrger musurgicaa powerful compositional device Kircher taught him, to some of the Italian princes.

The chromaticism a’-natural—a’-flat shown at the outset of the Lamentation for Ferdinand III is a striking gesture, but Min. Toccata 2 also bears a date in Bauyn; see ref.

With the exception of Schott, editors have tended to duplicate errors and inconsistencies present in these texts, puzzling the would-be performer. But what does it tell us except that some musicians were content to play haphazard arrangements of favorite bits from early seventeenth-century classics?
