Mozart's Attic - Thursday, March 24th 10:00 pm
Though he spent most of his life in what we now call eastern Germany, J.S. Bach was very much au courant as to what was going on elsewhere in Europe, studying other styles, tinkering with them, and sometimes trying his own hand at writing music as an English, French, or Italian composer might do it. This week we wrap up a series of Orchestral Suites in which Bach writes in the High Parisian style.
Next we'll look at some Renaissance and Baroque Spanish music for keyboard, then music of Beethoven and Stravinsky.
