So who was that master of his craft?

Johann Sebastian Bach rounded of the musical legacy of the Baroque age and opened the music of that time to the coming centuries with his art of polyphonic music. The musical statement which he wrote is a penetrating, emotional, clear and still spiritual idea. It is full of ethereal dimensions with a good dose of humility, human simplicity and faith. This is music which is practically inexhaustible! 

Great expectations

The festival will be presenting to is audience a programme focused both on interpretation of the generally known compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as the lesser known yet just as important works. There will be a total of 17 concerts. The festival will offer everything ranging from luxury vocal performances, soloist and organists as well as chamber groups, all the way through to symphony orchestras and choirs. The programme includes selected oratorios, piano compositions and organ fugues as well as some concertos for violin, oboe or cantatas for a mixed choir.

Where will the festival be taking place?

The Bach for All international music festival will be performed by musicians in several locations around the capital. Apart from churches and concert halls, they will also be playing in less-well-known, more intimate halls. It must be added that the festival is being held under the auspices of Cardinal Dominik Duka, the Archbishop of Prague, mayor of Prague 1 and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.

Luxurious culmination of the festival

The final concert in the festival will be a performance of the Magnificat in D major and the Easter Oratorio in the Church of Our Lady before Týn.

In general, it can be said that typical characteristics of Baroque music are melodiousness, quite deliberate charm and emotional appeal. The main aim was and is to transfer feelings to the audience and to have an impact on the listeners. So allow yourself to be carried away by the luxurious harmony of Baroque music which is still alive today and which is an inexhaustible well of inspiration of the muse!

“It is easy to play a musical instrument: all you have to do is press the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.” Johann Sebastian Bach
