Product Description


"A brilliant and enlightening collection of essays. Stinson sets the record straight about some controversial issues, offers a plethora of new and important information, and provides a wealth of data regarding Bach reception in the 19th and 20th centuries. For anyone interested in Bach's organ music, this book is required reading." --Jack Mitchener, Director of the McAfee Institute of Church Music and Associate Professor of Organ, Mercer University

"Russell Stinson has done it again with a book on Bach that every serious organist will benefit from reading. Addressing a variety of issues in Bach scholarship for the first time, the book also studies a wealth of fascinating information on how Mendelssohn, Schumann, Franck, and Elgar utilized the organ music of Bach in their own careers. This new work is a valuable addition to the existing literature on J. S. Bach." --David Higgs, Professor of Organ and Chair of the Department of Organ and Historical Keyboards, Eastman School of Music

"Sets an interesting and important goal--to survey a core area of the repertoire in the light of the ways in which it has been approached since it was written. Stinson does this very well indeed; he has aimed at more than one readership. And has succeeded on all counts."

"Of particular interest is the inclusion of related material--e.g., a study of Eduard Krueger, a true Bach organ fanatic (in the Schumann essay); a comical text for the G minor fugue
opening; and appendixes about Franck's pupils at the Paris Conservatory. For all organ ficionados and scholars...Recommended." --Choice

"A unique contribution to the world of Bach studies... Stinson's book offers many enlightening insights that advance the cause of Bach scholarship and performance." --Early Music America

HASH(0xb4283f3c) out of 5 stars Very interesting group of essays on J.S. Bach and the organ April 14 2014
By Organist/Grandma - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a well research group of essays on organ as it relates to J.S. Bach. Of particular interest to me was the information on which pieces Cesar Franck's pupils studied for exams at the Paris Conservatoire, how Mendelssohn and Elgar dealt with J.S. Bach. Of course they had a 19th century romantic interpretation and touch in their teaching, but still there were many interesting tidbits.
