Description

Above all, Leipzig is the city of music, and the Leipzig Bach festival is a fabulous opportunity to celebrate the life and creations of the famous former cantor of St. Thomas's Church. Every year, Leipzig’s Town Hall, Renaissance churches and the St. Thomas Church itself resonate with Bach’s contrapuntal, baroque harmonies. Works of artists influenced by Bach or having influenced Bach himself are present as well in daytime and evening performances, spread over more than a week. Leipzig has many other attractions but no Bach aficionado should miss the Felix Mendelssohn House – a museum dedicated to the composer who recovered and revived Bach’s music in the nineteenth century.
