Bach and forth
‘No man is an island, entire of itself’, not even the greatest composer who ever lived. There was a time before and a time after Bach. This twelfth Bach Academy Bruges looks beyond the boundaries of the great master’s life: back to his forefathers and sources of inspiration and (far) forwards to 20th-century reverberations. The master himself is naturally given the place of honour thanks, among others, to the expert touch of Philippe Herreweghe and his Collegium Vocale Gent.
