About Bach for All festival: 

In 2019, the Bach for All festival is celebrating its 3rd anniversary. This time, the main theme of the festival is  “Bach, the nobles, aristocracy and the king”. The idea of Bach for All this year is to present the crucial cornerstones of Bach’s music. The festival aims to expose Bach’s work in its wholeness while focusing on the well-known pieces as well as the more obscure opuses.
