Abstract

Froberger was probably Frescobaldi’s most famous pupil, studying with him in Rome between 1637 and 1640. This chapter asks how an established musician like Froberger might have studied the keyboard and how Frescobaldi’s ideas might have been transmitted. Using as a point of reference the much disputed authorship of the manuscript BAV Chigi Q.IV.25, this paper highlights residual elements of the oral tradition of the Roman keyboard toccata and posits a new hypothesis as to its author.
