Bach and the Dance
October 25 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm EDT
Lecture by Nicholas McGegan, Music Director Laureate Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale:
Much of Bach’s music is based on the rhythms of the court dances of his day, not just in the Suites and Partitas with named dance movements but also, less obviously, in the Cantatas and Passions. This talk aims to show how deep this vein of the dance runs in his music. In addition, what characters each type of dance had for musicians of the Baroque period.
