BACH ACADEMY BRUGES 2020
15 - 19 Jan 2020
With over 50 famous musicians and composers, the Bachs are undeniably one of the most musical families ever. The greatest of all the Bachs, ‘Sebastian’ to his friends, is owed a huge debt of gratitude here: not only did he ensure that all of his sons became musicians, he also trained a steady stream of pupils to become his ‘spiritual children’. This tenth Bach Academy Bruges opens the door on Bach's private life and on that of his family. A memorable occasion, made even more unforgettable because in 2020 we will be feting our guest of honour Philippe Herreweghe, whose Collegium Vocale Gent is celebrating its 50th birthday.
