Bach's surviving passions are an essential part of the modern repertory. These large, complex pieces are well loved, but behind these familiar passion settings lurk questions and problems that emerge from our distance from their original context. Bach scholar Daniel Melamed provides unique insight into Bach's passion settings. Hearing Bach's Passions uses the Bach repertory to introduce readers to some of the intriguing issues in the study and performanceof older music, and explores what it means to listen to this music today.
