Raven imports a book on performance practice, "Did Bach Really Mean That? Deceptive Notation in Baroque Keyboard Music," written by British harpsichordist and harpsichord builder Colin Booth.
For a Baroque musician, performance depended upon conventions which were subsequently forgotten by later generations. Later notation became more complicated on the page, attempting to specify detail rather than to rely on unstated but common performance practices. This book explores performance solutions for all Baroque composers, with emphasis on keyboard music, mostly for harpsichord.
