For a week, the rich world of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) comes to life during the concerts and activities at indoor and outdoor locations in the historic city center of Dordrecht. This festival edition shifts smoothly from tradition and recognition to innovation and surprise with the rich music of Johann Sebastian Bach as its starting point. This year, old music is side by side with contemporary music. In addition to the classical Bach repertoire, we can proudly say that three new compositions will premiere. Renowned musicians and ensembles make a nice connection from new to old music. The theme ‘Light’ sounds in almost all programs. A thrilling festival by fantastic musicians in beautiful locations!
