Bach Weekend 2017: Bach and the Paradigm of Perfection

Celebrating 10 Years


Martin Feinstein’s acclaimed Bach Weekend returns to Kings Place with its unique combination of informality and outstanding performances.

JS Bach always felt that it was his destiny to create transcendent works in each musical form and this year’s Bach Weekend focuses on those extraordinary masterpieces which remain, even today, the greatest examples of their kind: the Matthew Passion, the cantatas, the Art of Fugue and the 48 Preludes and Fugues.

Two of them are here juxtaposed with two of his most beloved orchestral works, the sublime D minor Concerto for two violins and the fiery Fourth Brandenburg Concerto.
