I have exciting news for those of you who have been studying Geminiani’s treatise “The Art of Playing the Violin”. The entire treatise is available online as part of IMSLP (International Music Score Library Project). This is an amazing resource for many thousands of public domain compositions. You can find Geminiani’s treatise at http://imslp.org/wiki/The_Art_of_Playing_on_the_Violin,_Op.9_(Geminiani,_Francesco)
I will be continuing the discussion about how Baroque musicians and composers thought about expressing emotions through music and will be looking at specific writings and examples.
For those who want to apply Geminiani’s writings directly to his music, now you have his treatise and a website that contains his compositions.
