Cambridge University Press, Nov 23, 1995 - Music - 238 pages
This volume brings together essays on J. S. Bach and members of his family by a distinguished group of scholars. The essays address Bach's compositions, his knowledge of the musical past, his study of contemporaries, and the cultivation of his own music by later generations. The studies draw on source-critical scholarship, musical analysis, religious and social context, performance practice, and reception history SH a broad range of techniques and issues in modern Bach scholarship.
