Bach Academy Bruges 2018

Bach rearranged

24 – 28 jan 2018

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. In this eighth Bach Academy Bruges, nothing is what it seems. 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. A surprising five-day Bach rearrangement!
