Concerto, Gaspare Traversi, (1722–1770), Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart
Baroquemusic.it is a digital collection of modern editions of music from the 17:th and 18:th century, dedicated to amateur and professional musicians. The scores are transcribed from original printed or manuscript sources, using LilyPond, an open source project. Selection of authors and music follows the personal taste and tendency of the editor.
While the edited scores have been frequently reviewed after private and public performances, nonetheless the editor declines any responsibility regarding the accuracy of the published material. Ancient sources frequently include ambiguities and typos and it is not always easy finding an unquestionable interpretation. In addition, there may be transcription mistakes, even if the editor writes LilyPond code with scrupulous patience. Giannantonio Ippolito, a professional baroque flute player, cooperates with the editor as a musical supervisor of the published materials.

The editor is grateful to those who will improve the collection notifying mistakes and erroneous intepretation for future revised editions. Appreciation or critical messages are also encouraged. The editor will publish scores and midi files submitted by the community under the condition that the musical sources are in the public domain and that the score is an urtext transcription with no rights reserved.
