One in a series of composer biographies derived from the second edition of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, this book provides an overview of the entire Bach musical dynasty as well as individual studies of the 14 family members. The recent discovery of C.P.E. Bach's musical estate in the Ukraine adds a wealth of information to an already valuable resource. A compact, definitive reference that is the essential starting point for any research on the Bach family, this book includes concise biographical profiles reflecting the latest scholarship, along with updated lists of works, extensive bibliographies, a family tree, an index and eight pages of black and white illustrations.
