A Woman? Voice in Baroque Music: Mariane von Ziegler and by MarkA. Peters

By MarkA. Peters

on the finish of his moment yr in Leipzig, J.S. Bach composed 9 sacred cantatas to texts via Leipzig poet Mariane von Ziegler (1695-1760). even though those cantatas are Bach's simply compositions to texts by means of a feminine poet, the works were principally missed within the Bach literature. Ziegler used to be Germany's first girl poet laureate, and the publication highlights her value in early eighteenth-century Germany and her dedication to advancing women's rights of self-expression. Peters enriches and enlivens the account with extracts from Ziegler's 4 released volumes of poetry and prose, and analyses her method of cantata textual content composition via arguing that her particular perception of the cantata as a style inspired Bach's inventive musical realizations. In contemplating Bach's settings of Ziegler's texts, Peters argues that Bach was once right here pursuing a couple of compositional systems now not universal in his different sacred cantatas, together with experimentation with the order of activities inside a cantata, with formal issues in arias and recitatives, and with using tools, in addition to cutting edge methods to Vox Christi texts and to texts facing speech and silence. A Woman's Voice in Baroque track is the 1st publication to deal intensive with problems with girls in tune relating to Bach, and one of many few accomplished experiences of a particular repertory of Bach's sacred cantatas. It for that reason offers an important new standpoint on either Ziegler as poet and cantata librettist and Bach as cantata composer.
