Dear MusIc-Lovers from all over the world, welcome to the 2016 Bach Festival!
»For me, Sebastian Bach is the alpha and omega of all music: every true progress rests with and is based on him«. Max Reger
The Leipzig Bach Festival is a music festival which takes place annually in the city of Leipzig, where Johann Sebastian Bach worked as the Thomaskantor from 1723 until his death in 1750.
Also in 2016 there are approximately 100 individual events during the Bach Festival, beginning with an opening concert conducted by the serving Thomaskantor. The final concert is traditionally a performance of Bach's Mass in B minor in the St. Thomas Church.
