"The Long Shadow of J. S. Bach," faculty lecture, Brooks Kuykendall @ The Pavilion @ Gari Melchers Home and Studio  | Falmouth | Virginia | United States

During his lifetime, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was significant for his acknowledged mastery of keyboard instruments, particularly the organ. How he came to be regarded as the supreme composer of the 18th century was the result of political machinations much later, as German states working toward unification needed a cultural hero to rally around. The renaissance (and in some cases rediscovery) of Bach’s music in the 19th century inspired European composers to explore Bachian techniques and genres, and his influence has pervaded musical cultures ever since. UMW musicologist Brooks Kuykendall will explore this phenomenon, considering examples from the works of Mozart, Schumann, Liszt, Saint-Saens, Elgar, Milhaud, Poulenc, Shostakovich, Jimi Hendrix, Procol Harum, and others.
