Being two of a few Bach-inspired masterpieces in the twentieth-century keyboard repertoires, Luigi Dallapiccola’s Quaderno Musicale di Annalibera and Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 4 contain the application of modern treatments on long lasting traditional subjects: the Baroque music style and the B-A-C-H motif. In this document, I discuss both composers’ multi-style blend (neo-Baroque/Serialism for Dallapiccola and neo-Baroque/Nationalism for Villa-Lobos) side by side through a close examination of their biographical background and stages of evolution, followed by a theoretical analysis of these two representative works. Dallapiccola’s mature dodecaphonic technique, along with the usage of symbolism and canonic writing are perfectly fused in Quaderno Musicale di Annalibera. Bachianas Brasileiras No. 4, as the title suggests, shows Villa-Lobos’ ingenious combination of Brazilian folk materials with a Baroque-like style. Finally, I compare the orchestral versions and piano versions in terms of the treatment of Bach-inspired elements through the orchestration.
