Book description

The Cambridge Companion to Bach, first published in 1997, goes beyond a basic life-and-works study to provide a late twentieth-century perspective on J. S. Bach the man and composer. The book is divided into three parts. Part One is concerned with the historical context, the society, beliefs and the world-view of Bach's age. The second part discusses the music and Bach's compositional style, while Part Three considers Bach's influence and the performance and reception of his music through the succeeding generations. This Companion benefits from the insights and research of some of the most distinguished Bach scholars, and from it the reader will gain a notion of the diversity of current thought on this great composer.

Reviews

‘This present collection of essays is far from being a rehash of what is already easily accessible in other sources, but sheds new light on known facts or, better still, unearths new ones ... unreservedly recommended for serious music libraries.’

Source: Reference Reviews

‘All fifteen contributions by international experts in their fields are informative and stimulating.’
