Understanding Temperaments

PostWed Oct 28, 2020 1:48 pm

I am currently reading Ross Duffin's excellent book How Equal Temperament Ruined Harmony. I wanted to find some examples of some of what he discusses in the book and found these two excellent videos by Alice M. Chuaqui Baldwin:

She provides excellent musical examples to illustrate her discussion. Highly recommended.

Thanks very much for these references. I have often wondered what "temperaments" were, but never took the time to research. I now understand much more about their whys and wherefores. A whole new and fascinating world!
