The Music of Johann Sebastian Bach
This class will examine a number of Johann Sebastian Bach's compositions, including organ and other keyboard works, concertos, cantatas, and passions. Bach wrote music according to the demands of his employments, although at the same time, his spirituality seems to permeate all of the music he composed. We will look into the particular professional and personal circumstances manifested in those works. Class materials will be available online and include watching and responding to YouTube videos. Any readings or other resources will also be available online or distributed through class handouts.
