We are delighted to announce that London Bach Society will be a patron of the 2020 Leipzig Bachfest – 11 -21 June “BACH – We are Family”
Leipzig Bachfest Artistic Director Michael Maul writes “The Leipzig Bachfest, in the company of the global Bach community, is set to be a celebration such as the historical Bach family used to hold: with music performed by the whole Bach family today as represented by guests from all over the world, including nearly 50 Bach choirs, who will be making the pilgrimage from every continent to Leipzig.”
For LBS this is wonderful opportunity to enjoy some self-marketing, meet fellow Bach Societies and support two recitals by two of the very brightest stars on the Bach platform today. Harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani (top) in a solo, and then joined by Pieter Wispelwey in a duo recital of Bach’s Sonatas for Viola da Gamba and Obbligato Harpsichord. Details from the Festival’s website. www.bachfestleipzig.de Hope to see you there!
