ELEVENTH BIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON BAROQUE MUSIC

Manchester, 14th-18th July 2004


Abstract

Roundtable: Theological Bach Studies

Participants: Robin A. Leaver, Chair (Westminster Choir College of Rider University, New Jersey, USA); Tanya Kevorkian (Millersville University of Pennsylvania, U.S.A.); Isabella van Elferen (University of Nijmegen, Netherlands); Pieter Dirksen (Netherlands Bach Society); Tassilo Erhardt (Rijksuniversiteit Utrecht, Netherlands); Anne Leahy and Redmond O’Toole (Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland).

Music is never created in a vacuum but within particular contexts which influence the compositional choices of a composer in different ways.

This round table explores some of the religious contexts of J. S. Bach's music, and includes assessments of contemporary religious movements, particular expressions of spirituality, as well as issues of theology.
