Partimento and Continuo Playing in Theory and in Practice – Leuven University Press
The subject of partimento practices. Sanguinetti's effort in this area offers new and valuable insights into the historical background of this tradition; further, the book explores the theoretical implications of these practices, and guides the interested reader in the complex art of realizing a partimento line as well. The book is divided into four large sections, with part 1 offering a history of the tradition. In chapter 2, Sanguinetti presents a basic definition: "A partimento is a sketch, written on a single staff, whose main purpose is to be a guide for improvisation of a composition at the keyboard" p.
Partimenti were originally conceived as an alternative form of notation; early references to this term treat it as a synonym for "basso continuo.
Out of this notational practice arose a strong tradition of partimenti as pedagogical tools, a method by which the Neapolitan masters could pass along information on a variety of musical matters--realization of unfigured basses, continuo playing, rules for improvisation, contrapuntal principles, etc. Chapter 3 presents a thoroughgoing exploration of the history of partimento practices in Italy.
Precursors to this tradition are examined, from the early uses of basso continuo, as outlined by Adriano Banchieri in his treatise L'organo suono, to the early Roman partimenti of Bernardo Pasquini and, perhaps most significantly, Alessandro Scarlatti Author: David Chapman.
