Abstract

Portugal's foremost keyboardist of the Baroque period was Carlos de Seixas. His music, however, has been overshadowed by that of his eminent contemporary Domenico Scarlatti.

This thesis is an attempt to bring Seixas's music out of obscurity and into the concert hall. It includes biographical material, structural and theoretical analyses that are based on all of his known keyboard works, and guidelines for the performance of the works.
