Jarvis and Bach

 Australian author Martin Jarvis starts with an astounding assertion, that Bach's second wife Anna Magdalena Bach wrote not only the Solo Cello Suites, but other major works attributed to Bach as well.  He expects us to go along with him with basically no real evidence. The much ballyhooed handwriting analysis is a joke, and it has been debunked by real Bach experts. And make no mistake about it Jarvis is decidedly not a Bach expert. For a thoroughly devastating critique of Jarvis and his absurd thesis please read this article written by eminent Bach scholar Ruth Tatlow.

  1. Tatlow crushed him. I feel bad for Jarvis though ... I think his assertion was part of his PhD dissertation.
