Below are links to scores that I have prepared in connection with performances and research. I’ve performed and recorded some of these compositions; others are works that I’ve written about or studied when modern editions were not available. A few of these scores are accompanied by commentaries about sources and readings, but most were not intended to serve as critical editions. They are listed alphabetically by composer. Pieces are for solo keyboard if not otherwise designated.

Latest additions: arrangements of songs in The Beggar’s Opera by John Gay (listed below under the original composer-arranger Pepusch).

C. P. E. Bach from Ashgate

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
edited by David Schulenberg
from Ashgate Publishing

This volume, published in 2015 as part of Ashgate’s “Late Eighteenth-Century Composers” series, gathers together important writings on all aspects of the life and music of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714–1788). The second son of the more famous Johann Sebastian Bach, C.P.E. Bach was an important figure in his own right, writing roughly one thousand compositions in virtually all the major eighteenth-century genres save for opera. Working first in Berlin and later in Hamburg, he was also known as a performer on keyboard instruments, and his two-volume Essay on that subject (known in German as the Versuch) remains a valuable source of information on eighteenth-century performance practice.

My introduction to the volume can serve as a guide to published scholarship on C. P. E. Bach. The introduction, together with a bibliography and a list of the 24 selections included in the volume, can be viewed here. Each selection comprises previously published material; some items are articles also available in online databases, but most are taken from hard-to-find sources that are not available electronically. The book falls into four parts titled (1) The composer and his works; (2) Individual compositions and their sources; (3) The Versuch and other writings; and (4) Performance and reception. Among the authors represented are Thomas Christensen, Christopher Hogwood, Mary Oleskiewicz, Annette Richards, Miklós Spányi, Christoph Wolff, and Peter Wollny.

The great majority of the material is in English. Newly published in this volume is the editor’s translation of an important early twentieth-century essay by Arnold Schering, as well as the editor’s overview of writings on C.P.E. Bach, which serves as introduction to the volume. An English version of an important article by Darrell M. Berg, originally published in German and reprinted here as “Carl Philipp Emanuel Bachs Umarbeitungen seiner Claviersonaten,” could not be accommodated within the new volume and therefore appears online here. I am grateful to the author for providing me with this English-language version of her article.


Discocgraphy and links to audio files for
Music of the Baroque
Music of the Baroque: An Anthology of Scores, third edition
by David Schulenberg (Oxford University Press, 2013)

Part 1 of this file lists recordings for Selections whose scores are included in the anthology. Part 2 lists recordings for musical examples in both volumes. The present file is for the third edition; click here for the discography for the second edition.
This list includes both commercial recordings and links to free online recordings, including several by the author. These links are included for the convenience of students and instructors, but I cannot vouch for their continuing availability, quality, completeness, or legal status. The inclusion of any link is not meant as a recommendation for or endorsement of a particular performance, nor is the failure to list any particular recording intended as a negative criticism.
An effort has been made to list accurate titles, label information, and dates for commercially issued recordings. Classical recordings, however, go in and out of publication quickly, and the same recording is often reissued on a different label or as part of a new compilation. Some recordings in this list may no longer be available under the title or label listed here, or they recordings may be available under alternate titles or on different labels (with new catalog numbers).
Most classical music recordings on CD are accompanied by booklets or inserts that include informative program notes, complete lists of performers, and original texts and translations (for vocal works). Although an increasing number of the recordings listed here are also available as downloads from online music sites, the original booklet inserts are not always included. When purchasing audio downloads, check whether the vendor’s order pages indicate “booklet / liner notes available” or the like (as on the site http://www.classicsonline.com/). If available, such files (which are usually in pdf format) should be included in any downloaded material.
