Thuringian Bach Festival - Bach in Thuringia
Thuringian Bach Festival
Largest music festival in Thuringia
This is where internationally-renowned soloists and ensembles perform along with young artists at the beginning of their careers. Their interpretations are surprizing and impressive - and are especially effective in the authentic venues.
The Thuringian Bach Festival does not exclusively celebrate early music, however. Crossover events in clubs, galleries, and factory halls show that Bach inspires other artists up until the present day. Dance, jazz, or baroque lounges enrich the festival programme and allow us to see Bach from new perspectives. Each year, the Bach Festival is opened with a Long Night of House Music, in which over a hundred public house concerts take place in private living rooms across the state. Children and adults, amateurs and professionals perform together and present Thuringia as a lively Bach-land.
