About this course:

J.S. Bach (1685-1750), a German composer of the Baroque period, composed in many established musical forms the cantata and fugue and developed them into complex and sublime pieces. His music is notable for its counterpoint compositional style and emotional expressiveness. This course explores Bach's life and works within the cultural and historical context of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in order to understand the music and the world in which it was conceived. In addition, we examine how Bach has come to hold a prominent and permanent place in our cultural milieu.
