Like no other composer, Johann Sebastian Bach unites the world: There are numerous Bach choirs, Bach societies, Bach festivals and Bach ensembles on all continents, not to mention all the music lovers who are especially touched by Bach’s music.
Wherever his music is made or to be heard, Bach indeed is at home - which is why on this platform, we also present concerts from special places from all over the world. Performances from artists’ homes, concerts from partner festivals abroad: All these events complete the Bach world, which helps to make the music available, inspired from our historic Bachland and its huge tradition. Therefore, the slogan of the Leipzig Bachfest is indeed true:
BACH - We are FAMILY
Whether it is live from St Thomas church or as a recording to re-watch: Our concerts offer Bach in all his variety, with the best performers in historic locations – and always worth to be discovered.
