The Return of Bach Weekend
After the enforced cancellation of Bach Weekend 2020, it is with huge pleasure that we can confirm the return of Bach Weekend to Kings Place this June, linking up with Kings Place’s year-long London Unwrapped season. Rachel Podger, one of the country’s greatest baroque violinists, will kick off the Weekend with a concert of solo Bach works, including the wonderful Partita in D minor and its monumental Chaconne. The central concert will be a performance of Bach’s sublime choral masterpiece the Mass in B minor, performed by the London Bach Singers accompanied by the Feinstein Ensemble and conducted by Martin Feinstein. Steven Devine will also give his acclaimed reading of the ever-popular Goldberg Variations and the weekend will finish with a concert featuring the “London Bach”, Johann Christian, celebrating the reopening of this great city as part of London Unwrapped.
