J.S. Bach, Vol. 2 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Volume 2 of 2-volume set. This stimulating narrative traces Bach's life; discusses contemporary artistic and philosophical movements; assesses the work of his predecessors Schutz, Scheidt, Buxtehude, etc., analyzes Bach's own work; and passes on brilliant recommendations for performance — tempo, phrasing, accentuation, dynamics, etc. Translated by Ernest Newman.

Synopsis:

Independent of his international renown as a humanitarian, Albert Schweitzer is well known as a great musicologist--a reputation that rests largely upon this book, one of the great full-length studies of composer Johann Sebastian Bach's life and work. Schweitzer's J.S. BACH is among the definitive reference works on Bach and is high on the list of required reading for music students.
