The Faber Pocket Guide to Bach, by Nicholas Kenyon, is a superb new addition to the highly successful Faber Pocket Guides - all the essentials about one the greatest composers in history. See all Product description. Customers who bought this item also bought. Sir Nicholas Kenyon lists his top Bach works early in the book. I've got about 20 cantatas on CD and none of mine were in his list, so I'm going to have to spend at least £50 catching up with what I've been missing! Also, if reading the biographical chapters doesn't make you start planning a tour of Thuringia, I'll be surprised.

  • This is not a work of original research into primary sources or a close technical analysis of Bach's compositional technique. What it is, and is an ideal example of, is a synopsis of where Bach scholarship stands today with respect to his life and music, and a survey of his major works with brief discographies. It can serve as an excellent introduction to Bach for newcomers but is also of interest to Bach aficionados who listen to his music, play some of it, and have read Spitta and Schweitzer and a few newer biographies. Thus I learned that the BWV (Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis) numbering system we have lived with for so long is being superseded, though the new system is not yet in general use. There are also updates on attributions - works attributed to Bach which weren't composed by him, and vice versa. Most of all, and not typical of survey books, this book is well-written and enjoyable to read. Highly recommended.

  • Ample information and clearly written. Some of the facts are wittily presented and enjoyable. A must have for those who love Bach's music.
