Editorial Reviews

Review

"A must for music historians and students of 18th-century culture. Essential." -- Choice

"The volume achieves its goal of returning C.P.E. Bach to a central place in the landscape of eighteenth-century music." --German Studies Review

Book Description

This collection of essays explores the literary and aesthetic contexts of C. P. E. Bach's later work, focussing on his activity in Hamburg from 1767 until his death in 1788. It includes essays on Bach's position on contemporary concepts of sensibility, his sacred music and views on religion, and on the contemporary and posthumous reception of his music. This volume, the first English-language collection of essays devoted to C. P. E. Bach since 1988, seeks to re-establish the centrality of Bach's music in late 18th-century German culture.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A wonderful and illuminating collection of essays, yet another of the outstanding achievements of this CPE Bach 300th-anniversary year. Congratulations are due to Annette RIchards and the authors whose work she solicited and pulled together here -- not to mention her own essay. Never a dry moment in this book: the love and enthusiasm of each and every author shines through his and her work at every turn. ¡¡BRAVO!!

Format: Hardcover
Does not talk about form, style clearly of pre-classical gallant style. very incoherent. Wants to say something and same time says nothing. I checked out from the library and returned very this unpleasant book, I myself would not pay a rusted penny.
