Alfred Dürr: J. S. Bach: St. John's Passion

Alfred Dürr, one of the most significant experts regarding Bach's oeuvre, presents with this book an impressing summary of the up-to-date general knowledge about the St. John's Passion. Origin, tradition and historical and stylistic classification of the work are outlined and so are textual aspects, questions of performance practice as well as formal aspects. Precise analysis of the individual numbers, also considering the rich symbolic subtexts that can often be found in Bach's music, complete the volume.
