Johann Kuhnau, who preceded Johann Sebastian Bach as Thomas Cantor in Leipzig, left a wealth of works, including pivotal compositions for keyboard instruments. Now for the first time all of these works are appearing in one volume. Peter Wollny, an Early Music specialist, supervised the volume from a scholarly point of view. Ornaments that are no longer usual today have been explained so that musicians who are more at home on a modern piano or grand piano lose their fear of this music and can embark on an exciting voyage of discovery.
In addition to the main sections, which contain about 8 pieces each, the appendix contains four additional works.
