London Bach Society Bachfest: Steinitz Bach Players 50th Anniversary Concert
6 November 2018
This year marks 400th anniversary of the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) and 100th anniversary of the end of WW1. The fall-out of both profoundly influenced cultural life in their succeeding decades – for Bach and for the new British Bach revival. In remembrance, our programme “Out of conflict…peace” runs the gamut of human emotion, from fear and hope in Cantata 60 to unalloyed joy in the first Brandenburg as only JSB can create it.
