This motto and program of the Bach Festival 2020, which was canceled due to Corona, is now finally coming to the fore and fully unfolding with slightly changed content, here the focus:
1. 18 CHORAL CANTATAS, which J.S.Bach composed in his second year as Thomaskantor in Leipzig, based on a famous hymn
2. the two passions ST MATTHEW PASSION and ST JOHN'S PASSION by J. S. Bach
3. Bach's Roots I-V
4.CELLO SUITES, SONATAS, PARTITES
5. and as always the "opus summum" as the final concert in B-Mass Minor
An early reservation for the best viewing and listening places makes sense here because of a possibly less space offer (hygiene regulations?).

"We know very little abaout Bach's life. There are only a few facts to go on and our image of him is skewed by statues and paintings of a stern forbidding figure in a frock coat and a powered wig.
And then there is the music.
Bach is still the benchmark, a musical gold standard, the ultimate composer's composor, influencing countless others from Mozart to Mendelssohn, Beethoven to Brahms, etc..."
from youtube, Sir J. E. Gardiner, A passionate life for Bach
