The material for study will be a varied selection of musical works by Johanna Sebastian Bach, for keyboard, voices and instruments, and orchestra or chamber ensemble. The nature of the sources, the questions that they pose (relating, for example, to performing practice), the composer’s musical language and his historical, geographical, intellectual and musical contexts will be among the subjects to be considered.
