Paper presentation: Uncovering Johann Kuhnau’s creative process from his autograph scores

This paper provides a close analysis of three of Johann Kuhnau’s autograph scores that show evidence of his compositional process, including Lobe den Herrn meine Seele I, Ihr Himmel jubiliert von oben, and Nicht nur allein am frohen Morgen. Insights will be offered into Kuhnau’s adaptation of earlier composers’ music and his construction of ritornello and recitative movements. This paper also investigates whether Robert Marshall’s methodology for sttudying J.S. Bach’s compositional process could be applied to Kuhnau’s cantatas.
