Nicholas McGegan: Bach and the dance Voices of Music Webinar 2020
In this video
Conductor, music director and performer Nicholas McGegan presents “Bach and the Dance” as part of the Voices of Music 2020-2021 online season.
Live stream from October 25, 2020
Much of Bach’s music is based on the rhythms of the court dances of his day,
not just in the Suites and Partitas with named dance movements but also,
less obviously, in the Cantatas and Passions. This talk aims to show how
deep this vein of the dance runs in his music, and. in addition, what characters
each type of dance had for musicians of the Baroque period.
