Keyboard

edited by Michael Talbot
Leaflet Music example (pdf)


George Berg’s eight keyboard suites, Op. 5, were published in London around 1760, while the composer was travelling in Italy. They are his most varied and resourceful compositions, following generally in the tradition of Handel’s suites but adding stylistic elements culled from Italian, German and French music in a playfully eclectic manner. This is sparkling, idiomatic music suitable equally for private enjoyment and concert use, but until now hardly known, even to specialists in the keyboard repertoire.
