Ornamentation in Baroque music was important. Johann Joachim Quantz describes two different types of ornaments. In this video we are talking about the ‘essential’, so-called French style ornaments. They are the ones we are most familiar with today, called trill, mordent, appoggiatura, etc.
How did people play these ornaments, where and how could they be combined?
Quantz gives us a huge array of information in his flute method which I have condensed into this 8 page PDF. There is also a video with sound examples (see below).
