About the Author
Joseph Kerman, Professor Emeritus of Music at the University of California, Berkeley, is the author of The Art of Fugue: Bach Fugues for Keyboard, 1715-1750 (California, 2005) among many other books.
"Kerrnan's musicological activity is technical without neglecting the importance of text, cultural context, meaning, expression, and value, and is likely to appeal to educated lay people.... Kerman's scholarship is careful and sensitive, and often subtle and witty. Yet this subtle scholarship has evoked strong and widespread reaction and provided significant leadership within musicology and beyond."
