The Cambridge Companion to Bach goes beyond a basic life-and-works study to provide a late twentieth-century perspective on J.S. Bach, the man and composer. The book is divided into three parts: Part One is concerned with the historical context, the society, beliefs and the world-view of Bach’s age. The second part discusses the music and Bach’s compositional style, while Part Three considers Bach’s influence and the performance and reception of his music through the succeeding generations. This Companion benefits from the insights and research of some of the most distinguished Bach scholars, and from it the reader will gain a notion of the diversity of current thought on this great composer.
