Bach Perspectives, Volume 11
J. S. Bach and His Sons
The sons who followed in the great composers footsteps
Among his numerous children, Johann Sebastian Bach sired five musically gifted sons. The eleventh volume of Bach Perspectives presents essays that explore these mens lives and careers via distinctive and, in several cases, alternative and interdisciplinary methodologies.
Robert L. Marshall traces how each of the sons grappled withand at times suffocated beneaththeir illustrious fathers legacy. Mary Oleskiewiczs essay investigates the Bach familys connections to historical keyboard instruments and musical venues at the Prussian court, while David Schulenberg looks at Carl Philipp Emanuel Bachs diverse and innovative keyboard works. Evan Cortens digs into everything from performance materials to pay stubs to offer a detailed view of the business of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bachs liturgical music. Finally, Christine Blanken discusses how the rediscovery of Bach family musical manuscripts in the Breitkopf archive opens up new perspectives on familiar topics.
A supplemental companion website is now available for Bach Perspectives 11. This resource features additional images, captions, and short descriptions to provide an essential supplement to the printed text.
"This book is, as with the earlier volumes in this series, immaculately produced and presented, and at once become an indispensable part of any serious musician's library." --Organ
