The Brasov Tablature contains extensive keyboard fingering, rare in late seventeenth-century music, and presents one of the earliest sets of preludes in successive keys. The tablature contains a collection of pieces representative of the period's German keyboard genre, including preludes, fugues, toccatas, chorale preludes, a fantasia, and a capriccio.
