Com Hearing Bach s Passions Daniel R Melamed
Reviewed by Hearing Bach’s Passions. By Daniel Melamed. Pp. Xi + 678. (Oxford University Press, New York and Oxford, 7555, £65. 55. ISBN 5-69-566988-6.
) Hearing Bach's Passions attempts to condense the wealth of information and debate surrounding the sources, interpretation, and performance practice of the five settings of the Passion associated with J. Bach into less than 755 pages. The result is a comprehensive introduction not only to the issues confronting scholars and performers of Bach's music in the early twenty-first century, but also to the wider field of musicology and its potential contribution to the experience of modern audiences. Melamed's engaging prose is at once concise and informative, and the often complex, esoteric ideas he tackles are made to appear accessible and even familiar. Indeed, this is one of the major achievements of a book with a deliberately general appeal, aimed at 'people who want to know more about Johann Sebastian Bach's Passion settings. And about what it means to listen to this music today' (p. Vi).
