“‘Old Age’s Lambent Peaks’: On Organic and Dialectical Paradigms of Lateness”
In April 2015 the University of Massachusetts Amherst launched its first festival and symposium celebrating the music and legacy of Johann Sebastian Bach. Since that time, the event has become a biennial tradition. However, the 2021 festival and symposium were unlike any of the prior events because of their virtual format. In addition, solo and chamber pieces replaced the large choral works featured in previous festivals. Pre-recorded performances, released each evening in the week prior to the symposium, also included several world premieres of compositions written in homage to Bach.
