At long last, a method for improvisation in Renaissance and Baroque music that is recommended by leading musicians and teachers, including Michael Schneider and Maurice van Lishout. The book provides an excellent overview - and vividly conveys the paths to "freer" music making - that is helpful not only for specialists, but also for amateurs.

„This is a useful book, rather more thorough than the usual instruction.“ EARLY MUSIC REVIEW (GB), 10/201413

„Auf den ersten Blick scheint Martin Erhardts gerade erschienenes Buch ähnlichen Inhalts [50 Baroque Standards, Fuzeau] zu sein. Doch stellt sich bald heraus, dass der Autor ... in vieler Hinsicht weit über die Veröffentlichung von Boquet und Rébours hinausgeht ... Das Buch ist ein Geschenk für alle, die Alte Musik machen, ein ‚must have’ für jeden, der Musiksprachen der Vergangenheit auch unabhängig von gedruckten Notentexten ‚sprechen’ lernen will.“ Prof. Michael Schneider in TIBIA, 1/2012

„Eine hervorragende Idee ist die beiliegende Mitspiel-CD, auf der .... Beispiele für die besprochenen Bassmodelle eingespielt sind, über denen der improvisationsfreudige Instrumentalist sein Können erproben kann. Na, dann los!“ DAS ORCHESTER, 2/2012
