Keynote Speaker: David Schulenberg
(Thursday 31 October, 10:00-11:00am)
David Schulenberg is author of books on the music of J.S., W.F., and C.P.E. Bach as well as the textbook and anthology Music of the Baroque, now in its third edition. Other topics discussed in his numerous articles include performance practice and attribution in seventeenth-century keyboard music and authenticity and expression in music of the eighteenth century. As an editor he has contributed volumes of keyboard sonatas and concertos to the ongoing Gesamtausgabe of C. P. E. Bach, as well as preludes and fugues to the new Breitkopf & Härtel edition of the organ works of J. S. Bach. A performer on harpsichord and other early keyboard instruments, he has been heard as a soloist across the US and Canada and in Japan and Hong Kong, and has recorded chamber music by Quantz, King Frederick “the Great,” and members of the Bach family on the Naxos, Hungaroton, and Albany Records labels. A resident of Boston, he teaches at Wagner College in New York City and has also served at Boston University, Columbia University, the Juilliard School, and elsewhere, and has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew Mellon Foundation, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and the American Bach Society. An ongoing project will lead to first recordings of several spectacular chamber works by J.G. Graun; his book on the life and works of J.S. Bach will be published by Oxford University Press.
