Cover photo of performer. Fernando Valenti as a harpsichordist can only be compared to Wanda Landowska in his influence on many generations of artists. The ones who didn’t study harpsichord because they fell in love with Landowska’s recordings, did so because they fell in love with Valenti’s recordings. And make no mistake, this book is about performing the partitas and while there is much information of interest to a listener, the focus is on actually playing at the keyboard.

Maestro Valenti displays the accumulated wisdom of a lifetime of study of numerous scholarly sources as well as a personal achievement of being one of the world's greatest harpsichordists of his era. He was the first professor of harpsichord at Juilliard, and chosen to play at The Prades Festival by Casals. He recorded almost all of Domenico Scarlatti for Westminster and revived interest in Antonio Soler for whom he displayed an unique talent. In this book he gives specifics for the interpretation of intricate nuances of the partitas in a question and answer form drawing on questions by former students.

His enormous intellect, extensive scholarship, and irrepressible sense of humor will delight the reader as he guides the most sophisticated player to achieve perfection.

Valenti's guide to the keyboard Partitas of J.S. Bach is an entirely subjective account of his personal interpretive whims. Written in a scripted, question and answer format (with dissapointing results) each movement of each Partita is alloted about three to five questions which, frustrating for the serious performer, tend to focus on historical asides rather than specifcs of articulation, dynamics, slurring, etc. In addition to this, these questions are often far more vague and juvenile than one would expect of an experienced musician ready to learn these monumental works. Occasionally the author will compare different editions of the Partitas and point out some important thoughts on ornamentation, but one would do better to spend the forty dollars on several good recordings of the works, which will likely be far more illuminating and enjoyable.
