Bach From Brecon
At the heart of the online festival will be a specially made film, premiering a new arrangement of Bach’s Goldberg Variations for nine instruments. The arrangement has been commissioned for the festival from Chad Kelly, the mesmerising director, keyboardist and arranger who appeared for the first time at the festival in 2019.
There will also be looks behind the scenes at the Goldberg project preparation and rehearsal with members of Brecon Baroque, a solo Bach recital from Rachel and an online talk event with Rachel and Chad.
