Volume I of this projected two-volume practical Urtext edition is the first to unite all the keyboard works of Georg Muffat (1653-1704) and Wolfgang Ebner (1612-1665).

That the clavier music of a composer of Muffat's stature should remain unpublished, apart from three pieces, is a mystery of musical scholarship. Muffat was, after all, a precursor of Johann Sebastian Bach on a par with Buxtehude, Pachelbel and the Krieger brothers. This edition contains the previously unpublished works in Codex XIV 743 from the Minorite Abbey in Vienna , as well as the three harpsichord pieces from Apparatus Musico-Organisticus that have already appeared in print.

Ebner was an organist and then was chapel-master at St. Stephen's in Vienna at the same time as Johann Jacob Froberger . Later he became the teacher of the Habsburg Emperor Leopold I. A master of strict counterpoint, his music surpassed even Froberger's in virtuosity.

Volume I contains a critical report (German/English) and a detailed preface (German/English) with sections on the source material, editorial method, performance practice and ornamentation as well as a discussion of each work.

- First publication of two outstanding 17th-century composers
- Detailed preface and critical report (German/English)
- Important addition to the harpsichord and organ repertoire

    This Barenreiter book is a throw-away edition of minor figures of the Baroque era. Georg Muffat was primarily known for compiling an ornamentation table and whose music is riddled with innumerable squiggles and trills and mordents, etc. i don’t recommend this book to put it simply. As far...

    as Ebner’s contribution to the book, he has more Froberger music than his own. And while his music is by far more playable than Muffat’s it still is not the greatest music ever written to warrant a high-priced edition.
