François Charles Dieupart (1676–1751) is one of the French baroque school's most charming and approachable composers. Although he lived in England for a large portion of his life, his only compositions for solo keyboard were written before he left Paris for London in 1699. Estienne Roger published Six Suittes de Clavessin, mises en concert in 1700 in two books: one for solo harpsichord and an ensemble version for violin or flute and continuo. In addition, Charles Babel and an unknown Austrian scribe copied some of his suites in variant forms alongside others not known elsewhere. This is the first modern edition to bring together all of Dieupart’s keyboard music and includes the ensemble version of Six Suittes with photocopiable instrumental parts. Editor Jon Baxendale discusses the composer, his music and the sources and provides notes on performance that include the character of French keyboard music, fingering and ornamentation.
