Greenberg takes a different view on baroque era works when it comes to repeat
Posted by Trung on 4/6/2017, 8:14 am, in reply to "Re: Should conductors skip the exposition repeats?"
There was an expectation that back in the baroque era that performers would improvise during the repeat and create essentially a different version of the written material on the score during the repeat
Since the art of improvising is dead, it's better for performers to not do the repeat unless they are an expert in baroque era practises and are capable of doing a repeat that sounds different to what is written on the score while at the same time sound authentically a baroque period work
