Igor Stravinsky & Bach

Bach to Stravinsky

Jason Marmaras wrote (March 2, 2004):
Does anyone know what Stravinsky or any contemporary of his thought of Bach’s music?

Anticipating your replies,

PS: I am planning to post about the Mass soon... (oh yes, that IS a threat =P )

Tony wrote (March 2, 2004):
[To Jason Marmaras] See 'Conversations with Igor Stravinsky' by Robert Craft (?Kraft). I recall that S. hated Vivaldi but loved Bach.

Bradley Lehman wrote (March 2, 2004):
[To Jason Marmaras & Tony] See Richard Taruskin's essay "The Pastness of the Present and the Presence of the Past" in his book Text & Act: Essays on Music and Performance (1995). OK, that whole book. It's all thought-provoking.
