The Bach Heritage

The Bach Heritage

(p.228) Chapter 13 The Bach Heritage

Malcolm Boyd

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the musical heritage of Johann Sebastian Bach. It mentions a commentary by a critic who recognized in Bach's music the perfection and culmination of all that his predecessors had been striving towards. Bach's craftsmanship was universally acknowledged and the pedagogical value of his chorale harmonizations and keyboard fugues were recognized. His compositions are still being listened to and played in churches. But despite this, Bach had very minimal influence on other composers.

Keywords:   Johann Sebastian Bach, musical heritage, chorale harmonization, keyboard fugues, musical composition
