BACH: John Butt Lecture

Wednesday 8 July 10.30am
Bach: Method & Obsessive Compositional Syndrome
Venue: Bedern Hall

Bach is often seen as the most ordered and systematic of composers, yet for many in his own time he simply went too far, pushing compositional methods well beyond standard boundaries in a way that might have seemed like madness to many.

John Butt – Gardiner Professor of Music at the University of Glasgow and musical director of the Dunedin Consort – examines this side of Bach that, ironically, has given his music such enduring significance for later generations.
