Summary
Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart stand as representatives of European music of the eighteenth century, composers whose works reflect intellectual, religious, and aesthetic trends of the period. Research on their compositions continues in many ways to shape our broader understanding of eighteenth century musical thought and its contexts. This collection of essays offers a variety of perspectives on the two composers, as well as some of their important contemporaries, Haydn in particular. The book addersses topics such as the historiography of eighteenth-century music, concepts of time and musical form, the idea of the musical work and its relation to publishing practices, compositional process, and performance practice.--From publisher's description
