New Arrangement of The Baroque Project

Rather than go step by step through any whole treatise, I would like instead to proceed with our discussion thematically, arranged by topic and in this way gain a better understanding of Baroque style in general. I will draw on a variety of sources in addition to the present one in order to do this. I would like to say before doing so that Geminiani’s treatise is an excellent resource for learning things like the manner in which Baroque performers held their instruments, ornamentation, and exercises for achieving facility on the violin. We will no doubt return to these topics at a later date.
