Description

Bach and concepts of musical creativity

Professor Stephen Rose
Department of Music

How did people around 1700 explain the power of musicians to compose or improvise? This lecture explores ideas of musical creativity in the age of J S Bach, including Lutheran beliefs that God was the author of all music, humanist views that music arose from innate talent, and an artisanal outlook on music as a product of manual skill. The tensions between these historic notions of musical creativity offer new ways to interpret Bach’s music today.
