The Greatest Musician Who Ever Lived
Johann Sebastian Bach is widely considered to be the greatest musician who ever lived. He is known to have taught his own students the principles of music by making them study and write chorales. These brief pieces of music are masterpieces not only of harmonic virtuosity but music pedagogy and musical instruction. They have been the cornerstone of music education and instruction for more than 150 years and have been extolled by practically all the great musicians who have followed in his wake.
Each piece is given it's own page for easy viewing. This volume of Bach's chorales is far different from any other because it provides in depth harmonic analysis and gives countless insights into Bach's inexhaustible musical genius. The modern musician will benefit greatly from this book as the chords that Bach used are all notated in jazz type chord symbolism that is provided above the staff for ease of comprehension here. Helpful footnotes and important insights regarding J.S. Bach's thorough-bass style and unique harmonic vocabulary that were recorded by his son Carl Philip Emanuel are provided throughout the text.
