The bachFest Tallinn music festival takes place from  the 1st to 7th of January 2019. For the eighth year in a row Tallinn will start New Year with marvelous sounds of music by the famous German composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The festival has become a tradition and an original, warm and beautiful New Year’s greeting of Tallinn to all the inhabitants and visitors of our capital.

 

The concerts programs present organ, instrumental, orchestral, choral, vocal and cristmas cantatas works by Johann Sebastian Bach. The festival concerts will take place in the large concert hall of the Niguliste Museum (Church of St. Nicholas) and the St. Anthony Chapel of this museum, where the most famous work of art in Tallinn has been preserved and is currently displayed – the fragment of the original wide painting  of Bernt Notke’s Danse Macabre (Dance of Death). The best works of J.S.Bach, as well as the works of other greatest composers will be performed by musicians from Estonia, France, Italy, Germany and Poland.
