J.S. Bach and “dance” are almost inseparable. Much has been written and discussed on Bach’s use of dance forms in his music.
Although I haven’t read it yet, Dance and the Music of J.S. Bach, co-authored by Meredith Little and Natalie Jenne, is high up on my reading list. The current expanded edition was published in 2009 by Indiana University Press.
In 2013, WQXR featured Bach 360º, a ten-day festival exploring how J.S. Bach resonates with today’s audiences. The March 26th episode, entitled Dance in the Music of Bach, highlighted the top five dance works based on Bach's music. Listen to the episode here.
