It’s amazing that a composer who lived and worked three centuries ago can inspire the creation of contemporary music performances and still attract new audiences. That’s probably why we call Johann Sebastian Bach a genius.
Bachcelona is a festival with a commitment to quality. Over the course of its history, it has hosted the foremost international artists specialised in Bach. What’s more, innovation is at the festival’s core. Across the framework of Bachcelona, it seeks to reach beyond the concert format. Always fostering artistic interaction with other disciplines, it showcases theatre, contemporary dance, cinema and the visual arts.
