This edition consists of the collections Premier “Livre” (1706), “Pièces de Clavecin” (1724, 1731), “Nouvelles Suites de Pièces de Clavecin” (ca. 1728), “Cinq Pièces” (1741) and “La Dauphine” (1747). The musical text is based exclusively upon the composer`s own First Editions, for we no longer possess autograph manuscripts of Rameau’s harpsichord compositions, with the single exception of “La Dauphine”. The original ornament signs are employed throughout. The written texts appended by Rameau to the Second and Third Collection of his harpsichord pieces are here reproduced for the first time together with complete English and German translations. The facsimile reproductions have been included in order to assist the performer better to assimilate.
