Featuring Dr. Ellen Exner

 

Discover more about how Bach’s exposure to the French Style as a young musician shaped his compositional approach across many genres.

 

Specializing in music of the eighteenth century, specifically the Bach family and Berlin in the time of King Frederick II, Dr. Exner holds Music History and Russian Language and Literature degrees from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst), an M.A. from Smith College and a Ph.D. in Historical Musicology from Harvard University. Her current book project re-examines the roots of Mendelssohn’s famous 1829 Berlin performance of J. S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and the mythology that surrounds it.

 

Dr. Exner joined the full-time Music History faculty at the New England Conservatory of Music in 2015, and is a member of the Editorial Board of the American Bach Society.
