Title: Partimento – vrcholná forma hry generálneho basu
Author: Jana Zelenková

Abstract: Partimento – the supreme form of basso continuo playing – significantly influenced the musical thinking of the European composers from the beginning of the 17th century till the end of the 19th century.
The rules of partimento form part of the theory of harmony and voice-leading after the Neapolitan tradition, and it is necessary to deal with them not only from the theoretical point of view but also practically. The variety and non-uniformity of preserved collections of exercises and rules were brought about by individual approach and contribution of each of the masters who many decades ago instructed their disciples in the method. Although many years have passed partimento has not lost its currency.
A publication dealing with the issue of partimento has not been published in Slovakia nor Bohemia yet. The writer’s goal was to present partimento not only from the theoretical point of view, but also to demonstrate it to practical musicians, above all to keyboard instrument players, conductors and contemporary composers.
