The “Continuo” part is to be played on an electric keyboard.
A each letter (A to I) a different sound should be selected, although some of them can be identical, i. e. there do not
need to be 9 different registers (A to I) but only those which suit the music best.
The sound should match the dynamics and the orchestration. For instance, on the Kawai K1, the IC5 (Reflexion), the
ID3 (Vibes) seem to be adequate for the loud sections, and the IB3 (Jazz Harp), and IB8 (Pizzicato), for the soft
sections. The “Harpsichord” and “Piano” sounds are useful.
The sound of the “Continuo” should always melt into the orchestra, and never stand out as a soloist! It should
emphasize the rhythm and add (mostly to the strings) a slightly different timbre as if they played alone.
The choice of registers is left to the discretion of the player and of the conductor based on the resources of the
instrument available, and within the classical style of the music.
