From Bach’s Feet to … ?

 

This is Johann — Get Me A Rewrite

From David Yearsley, the author of the upcoming Bach’s Feet, we read this interesting post on counterpunch.org. I haven’t seen the book, so I can’t recommend it, but I can recommend his pedestrian post!

“How fitting that the music of the obsessive tinkerer Bach, a composer who could never leave his own music alone when he returned to it, should have been obsessed over continuously for the last one-hundred-and fifty years by editors and interpreters.” How many of us organists and composers and arrangers can identify with this!
