Bach Academy Bruges 2018
From 24 to 28 January, the Concertgebouw and the city of Bruges will be the capital of Bach.
In a world with no radios, CDs or streaming, music was often heard just once. Every performance was an almost heartrending luxury. It's therefore only logical that hard-pressed composers liked to recycle their hits. Listen to how Bach edits and rearranges music by himself and by others, and how adventurous musicians have drawn inspiration from the Thomas Cantor's heritage. With Collegium Vocale Gent, Il Suonar Parlante, Ricercar Consort, Bojan Cicic and many others!
