    schema:description "More than any other part of Bach's output, his keyboard works conveyed the essence of his inimitable art to generations of admirers. The varied responses to this repertory -- in scholarly and popular writing, public lectures, musical composition and transcription, performances and editions -- ensured its place in the canon and broadened its creator's appeal. The early reception of Bach's keyboard music also continues to affect how we understand and value it, though we rarely recognize that historical continuity. Here, Matthew Dirst investigates how Bach's music intersects with cultural, social and music history, focusing on a repertory which is often overshadowed in scholarly and popular literature on Bach reception. Organized around the most productive ideas generated by Bach's keyboard works from his own day to the middle of the nineteenth century, this study shows how Bach's remarkable and long-lasting legacy took shape amid critical changes in European musical thought and practice. This book: Illuminates how the reception of Bach's keyboard works affected various aspects of musical thought and practice to 1850; Focuses on a repertory often neglected in studies of Bach's reception, complementing the sizeable literature on the nineteenth-century revival of Bach's church works; Presents a broad-based inquiry into Bach's historical legacy, contextualising his music within cultural, social and music history. - Publisher."@en ;
