Johann Sebastian: A Tercentenary Celebration

Synopsis

The genius of Johann Sebastian Bach transcends the boundaries of time, geography, and discipline. This collection of essays, the outgrowth of a conference held at Hofstra University, celebrates the tercentenary of the composer's birth. The contributors show the often unanticipated impact of his works in such diverse areas as literature, film, religion, and psychology. The wide-ranging articles offer theoretical analysis, biographical-musical interpretation, literary and religious explorations, and analyses of performance practice.
