The Long Night of Bach

Bamberg, Konzerthalle, Joseph-Keilberth-Saal
19:00 Uhr

Johann Sebastian Bach is at the centre of everything tonight: to celebrate Bach’s 333rd birthday, we’ve a kaleidoscope of works, either from his own pen, inspired by him, or arranged by other composers from Bach’s originals. The feast of Bachiana ranges from an organ prelude and fugue, via string quartets, to his Brandenburg Concertos and orchestral Suites. The evening ends late, with a jazz trio directed by composer and pianist Christian Elsässer, who will display his own jazz idiom inspired by Bach.
