"This concise volume is a welcome and valuable addition to the burgeoning genre of Bach reception literature, as well as to the numerous recent studies concerned with German musical aesthetics in the 18th and 19th centuries."
--Early Music America
Matthew Dirst presents a wide-ranging historical explanation of J. S. Bach's keyboard works. Closely examining the most important ideas this music has inspired, Dirst explores the significance, influence and reception of canonic works including The Well-Tempered Clavier during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
