Music Professor Craig H. Russell will present an Akademie lecture titled “Bach’s Suites: The Summation of Style, Structure, Science, and the Dance of Nations.” During the Age of Reason, scientists and mathematicians strove to explain the cosmos — with its laws of motion and energy — in a complete, rational, and structured way. In his talk, Russell will show how Bach similarly strove to explore the musical cosmos — with its panorama of national styles and rules of composition — in his encyclopedic, all-encompassing collections for keyboard, solo violin and unaccompanied cello. This and most Bach Week events are free. Visit the Bach Week website for details.
