Bath Bachfest


The annual Bath Bachfest, now in its seventh year, is a delightful fixture in the Georgian city’s annual calendar, celebrating the music of J S Bach and his contemporaries.

This year this 3-day, 5-concert mini-fest will place Bach in an international context, alongside music from great European masters of the Baroque period. Bach, of course, Vivaldi, Handel, Corelli and Telemann alongside composers less well-known today, such as Zelenka and Chédeville.

The evening concerts feature the period-instrument ensemble Florilegium, the renowned Academy of Ancient Music with guest director Christian Curnyn, and The English Concert, conducted by Harry Bicket, with the Erebus Ensemble and a starry cast of soloists, performing Bach’s great Mass in B minor in Bath Abbey. Harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani and record-player Michala Petri promise a delicious lunchtime concert, and Rachel Podger’s Brecon Baroque offers a Saturday morning treat with a programme devoted to the Red Priest.
