Bach—Violin Concerto in E Major

Lecture no. 4 from the course: The 30 Greatest Orchestral Works

Bach—Violin Concerto in E Major

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 46 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

In reviewing contemporary criticism of Bach’s music, reflect on the ways in which the very originality and complexity we prize in Bach made him controversial in his own time. Highlighting the first two movements of the E Major violin concerto, see how Bach pushes the limits of both ritornello and passacaglia forms, transcending the episodic nature of these forms to create a compelling sense of dramatic narrative.
