2.0 étoiles sur 5 Frustrating and fragmented 6 janvier 2013
Par B. Abramson - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is several books in one. There is a good biography of J.S. Bach, several biographies of Bach interpreters (Schweitzer, Casals, Gould), a history of the emergence of recording technology, and more. These are woven together but do not form a single fabric. Elie appears to be attempting to connect the way musicians interpret Bach with the way recorded music evolved. This attempt, at least for me, sank under a weighty burden of elaborate metaphors and literary prose. More than anything these sections reminded me of writings about art or literature: I understood every word, the occasional phrase, and not a single sentence. The metaphors are stretched beyond breaking point: a description of the working methods of James Watson and Francis Crick is included simply to show that the working methods of post-war recording engineers were similarly improvised and ad hoc. I frequently found myself asking "What is the point here?" and was rarely able to find a satisfactory answer. Surely the point must be more than "music can be interpreted in different ways and Bach's is particularly open to varied interpretation"? The biography of Bach is welcome, the remainder tries far to hard to make an argument that doesn't seem worth the effort.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 His Master's Voice 24 septembre 2012
Par David Kidd - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Reinventing Bach is an extremely fluid and enjoyable read. Elie does his readers the greatest service of reminding us that while Bach is frequently the gateway composer for people's classical music experience, he was anything but common--a radical innovator in composition, performance and in the refining and inventing of musical instruments. Elie then uses this portrait of Bach as a framework over which he lays out the innovations in performance, instrumentation and recording of Bach in the modern age. In addition the book gives us remarkable and welcome context in the overall musical recording world that wonderfully explodes what could otherwise be a narrowly focused study. Growing up in the Evangelical Lutheran Church, my own first encounters with Bach were delivered by middle-aged, mid-Atlantic or mid-Western church organists who could somehow manage to make a fugue feel like a funeral march. When I first discovered my parents' Switched-On Bach LP, I almost couldn't believe the compositions hadn't be altered. Elie celebrates this idea--that so often our appreciation of music is affected by the medium, time and place of its delivery. The high point of my own journey with Bach and his various innovators came at Carnegie Hall listening to Yo Yo Ma's marathon performance of the Suites for Unaccompanied Cello. Many thanks to Mr. Elie for increasing my appreciation for and understanding of that journey!

As others have pointed out, there are some mistakes in a few details, but I was not reading this book for technical details. The further I got into it, the more I realized that Elie was not teaching me, except to teach me one writer's joyous response to perhaps the greatest music ever.
Reinventing Bach could just as well be called Celebrating Bach, in different countries, different times, different media. The music of Bach runs through the book (not really; I spent a lot of time on Youtube chasing down performances), holding together a history of the twentieth century.
Just about every day that I read this book, I posted a sentence or two on Facebook, hoping to get someone else to join the party.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nonfiction event of the season 23 septembre 2012
Par James VanOosting - Publié sur
If Elie's first book, THE LIFE YOU SAVE MAY BE YOUR OWN, was a sonorous quartet, REINVENTING BACH is a polyphonous cantata, well-tuned, well-tempered, in its every note. I've never before written an amazon review, but then I've never before read such an astonishing survey. To intertwine a musical biography of Bach with a history of sound technology is a singular achievement and, for my money, the nonfiction event of the season. If you already love Bach, your devotion will be deepened. If you've been unacquainted till now, a lasting friendship will ensue. Substitute 'Elie' for 'Bach' in the last two sentences, and they'll be just as apt.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Abundance of Vibrant Worlds 24 septembre 2012
Par Nancy Williams - Publié sur
A pianist with very little Bach in my repertoire (Chopin takes the lead), I hoped Reinventing Bach would help me find a way into understanding Bach and his music. The book certainly delivered on that hope, as well as so much more: a cascade of vibrant and interconnected worlds. The book traces the stories of five musicians and how Bach revolutionized their music and how they each in turn affected our understanding of Bach, and all the while, a history of recording unfolds in a way that is very natural to the musicians' stories. Interlaced with these five stories is Bach himself, growing up, falling in love, seeking new professional posts, while doggedly composing one of the greatest canons in western classical music. Of the five musicians, I was especially taken with the story of Pablo Casals, a Spaniard from a humble background who grew into a cellist with an international reputation. The moment when the young Casals finds a dusty score of Bach cello suites in a shop was truly electrifying, as was Casal's subsequent study of the suites, which enabled him to plunge into the interior world of his feelings. I felt that the author truly understands the vital connection that musicians have with the scores they study and even the stories of the composers themselves. If this abundant feast was not enough, other musicians, including pianists such as Rosalyn Tureck and Daniel Barenboim, make cameos throughout the narration, creating the effect of a very rich tapestry indeed. Bach's masterpiece of preludes and fugues beckons--I now feel a desire to learn the Well Tempered Clavier--and for this change in sentiment I must thank Paul Elie for writing such a bountiful book.
