J.C. Graupner: Bach's rival for the Thomaskantorat

Lawson, C. (1983) J.C. Graupner: Bach's rival for the Thomaskantorat. Musical Times, 124 (1679). pp. 17-19. ISSN 0027-4666 (print) 2397-5318 (online)

Abstract

The reputation of Johann Christoph Graupner as a composer now rests largely on his successful application for the position of Thomaskantor at Leipzig, to which Bach was eventually appointed. In this context his name has consistently appeared in the Bach literature, though few writers have been disposed to investigate Graupner's own prodigious achievement.
