Although he is the son of J. S. Bach, C. P. E. Bach is an important composer in his own right, this long-awaited annotated bibliography presents a complete listing of the works of C. P. E. Bach. This volume in the Routledge Music Bibliographies series includes many different aspects of his work: the editing of his father's masterpieces, his concertos and sonatas and theoretical essays. Doris Powers also collects writings that consider C. P. E. Bach's influence, the reception of his works and the cultural milieu in which Bach composed.
In this groundbreaking, historically-informed semiotic study of late eighteenth-century music, Stephen Rumph focuses on Mozart to explore musical meaning within the context of Enlightenment sign and language theory. Illuminating his discussion with French, British, German, and Italian writings on signs and language, Rumph analyzes movements from Mozart’s symphonies, concertos, operas, and church music. He argues that Mozartian semiosis is best understood within the empiricist tradition of Condillac, Vico, Herder, or Adam Smith, which emphasized the constitutive role of signs within human cognition. Recognizing that the rationalist model of neoclassical rhetoric has guided much recent work on Mozart and his contemporaries, Rumph demonstrates how the dialogic tension between opposing paradigms enabled the composer to negotiate contradictions within Enlightenment thought.
