New edition of Johann Mattheson’s “Melodious Talking-Fingers”

Colin Booth and Matthew Brown recently published a new edition of Johann Mattheson’s  “Die Wohlklingende Fingersprache” (The Melodious Talking-Fingers) under the Soundboard label.  Drawing solely on the original 1735 publication , it includes beautifully clear scores for 12 fugues and assorted pieces for keyboard which are complemented by an informative Preface and useful Editorial Notes in English and German.  The Edition is a wonderful accompaniment to Colin Booth’s exquisite recordings of Mattheson’s of “The Melodious Talking Fingers” and “Twelve Suites of 1714”. The Edition and recordings can be ordered at
