Written by Mrs Bach

Martin Jarvis

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    It's not often that one of the world's greatest composers is accused of plagiarising his wife's work, but an Australian musical expert has cast doubt on whether Johann Sebastian Bach wrote all his own material. Conductor Martin Jarvis believes Bach's cello suites were composed by the German musician's second wife, Anna Magdalena Bach (1701-60). He takes us on an intriguing journey of speculation and discovery to uncover the truth and rewrite some musical wrongs. When ABC 'AM' broke the story, it was wired all around the world and created a sensation in music circles.
