A Book on Bach's Ornamentation?

Postby PianistSk8er » 20 Nov 2006, 18:03

I seem to remember seeing a book at a workshop. Did one of Bach's sons write a book about his father's ornamentation? or am I remembering this incorrectly?

If this is true, what is the name of the book?

Thanks in advance,

The book is from C.P.E.Bach, the original german title is "Versuch über die wahre Art das Klavier zu spielen". I don't know the correct english translated title, but it must be something like "attempt about the real art to play the piano".
I have not read it, but I hope to get it as Xmas present. All what I read about it, it is worth to have - a standard work, an original.

Here is a link about the ornamentation Bach senior used:
