Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is an account of the actions taken by the residents of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to create a local amateur society singing the music of J. S.Bach and to develop it into a choir of international importance. Singers, instrumentalists, industrialists, academicians, bankers, and churches acted in community to found and perpetuate a group devoted to sharing the music of Bach locally, nationally, and internationally. While The Bach Choir of Bethlehem performs frequently elsewhere, the annual Bethlehem Bach Festival became and remains a magnet for those who love Bach and want to experience his music excellently performed in historic and sacred surroundings.
In order to reach and maintain its premier status, the choir, its conductor, its board, and staff had to be experts in music performance and shifts in audience tastes. They had to be responsive to research in performance practice, and skilled in strategic planning, promotion and fundraising. In recent years they had to become competent in sound recording technology and use of the internet. These attributes are described and analyzed with frequent use of documents and personal anecdotes.
Successfully balancing the human actions and desires involved in such a complex enterprise has earned The Bach Choir of Bethlehem the title “A National Treasure” in music and the recognition that it is at the same time a national model for excellence as a cultural non-profit organization.
This is a story of how and why - for over a century - inspiring performances of Bach’s music came about and were brought to many thousands of listeners.

If you love Bach, this new book is worth your time. Dr. Paul Larson has written a scholarly, and yet easy
to read, comprehensive history of the oldest Bach choir in America from its founding in 1898 to the present. Dr.
Larson is presently professor emeritus at Moravian College, and archivist and curator of The Bach Choir of Bethlehem.
While there have been several abbreviated histories of the internationally famous Choir in the past, this is the first to examine the complex inner workings of the Choir. Using the unmatched resources of The Bach Choir archives, the Moravian Church archives and Lehigh University, the author reviews each of the six conductors in
meticulous detail, both in terms of their musical contributions to Bach performance standards, and of equal interest, their interactions with the organizational structure of the Choir and its management.
The book is well-organized and the excellent introduction provides an international context for the rediscovery of Bach's music in the early 1800s and the implications for performance of his music. Current and future inquirers of The Bach Choir history will find the book and its exhaustive footnotes an indispensable resource for their own scholarly research.
The perceptive reader will also learn a great deal about Johann Sebastian Bach, universally regarded as the greatest composer of all time, and the growth of classical music in America.
