Musical Direction

A pre-Christmas concert with the most beautiful works from the Christmas compositions of Bach's son, other Bach relatives and, of course, Johann Sebastian Bach himself. You can experience the diversity of one of the most productive families in the history of music, because almost all of them were musicians. Especially Johann Christoph Friedrich, Friedemann and Johann Sebastian Bach are to be mentioned. They wrote works that still enrich concert programs today.
