This book is an edition, with commentary, of Handel's exercises for continuo playing, which he wrote for the daughters of George II. The exercises, which until now have not been readily available, are supplemented by clear and concise commentary. Remaining faithful to his source, Ledbetter, who lectures in keyboard studies, has prepared an edition that will prove invaluable to students and performers of the music of Handel and his contemporaries.

About the Author:

David Ledbetter is at Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester.

Review:

`most stimulating publication' Early Music News

`an ideal introduction to the art of playing from the figured bass ... The work under review is based on a substantial set of exercises devised by Handel ... David Ledbetter has provided substantial commentaries on all these exercises, and has written specimen realisations illustrating
admirably the many points implicit in them. He has also provided a most useful Introduction.'
Organists' Review

'a timely book, the kind of thing that seems obvious once it is actually available, and I hope it replaces other first-stage tutors ... The format and music size are made for putting on the piano desk, and the textbook approach means a direct, pleasant tutor that deserves to be a set book ...
Mr Ledbetter's clean, well-thought-out realizations and commentary could well encourage that pianistic harmony characteristic of keyboard harmony exams.'
Peter Williams, Music and Letters

`a welcome contribution to the small number of modern pedagogical works on figured bass... Ledbetter offers excellent suggestions for further practice in the compositions of J.S.Bach'
Patrick J. Rogers, Newsletter of The American Handel Society

'a practical workbook which Handel put together during the decade in which he was teaching the daughters of King George II ... David Ledbetter's thoughtful commentary is most helpful, especially to the novice, and he encourages the reader not to be intimdated by the thought of improvising
either upon a bassline or a fugue subject, stressing Handel's completely pragmatic and accessible approach.'
Elisabeth Wright, Indiana University, Early Keyboard Journal, Volume 11 - Nov 1993
