Residency with Stefano Greco: Lecture on the Rhetorical Reading of Bach


Stefano Greco, the renowned specialist in Bach's music, continues with the second day of his three-day, four-event Residency hosted by our Composition area. The lecture comes from the historic Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome.

This lecture discusses discoveries on the language of Bach. Stefano will reveal the reading of several of Bach's works rhetorically, according to expressive media (both rhythmic and harmonic) that Bach used. This reading allows an interpretation and decoding of Bach’s music that is both more conscious and usable to the composer and performer.

This program is made possible by the Joyce S. and Robert U. Nelson Fund. Robert Uriel Nelson was a revered musicologist and music professor at UCLA, who, together with his wife, established a generous endowment for the university to make programs like this possible.
