Baroque Piano Music

Baroque piano sheet music

Baroque piano music is a fascinating and intricate genre that flourished from the early 17th to the mid-18th century. Baroque composers, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, and Domenico Scarlatti, wrote keyboard music that showcases complex counterpoint, ornamentation, and the use of the harpsichord as the primary instrument.

In the early Baroque, the piano was not invented yet, so the keyboard instrument of choice was the harpsichord. The main pieces for piano composed during this time include dances such as minuets, polonaises, marches, gavottes and musettes.
