Brecon Baroque Festival 2021 - Live and Online
The 2021 Brecon Baroque Festival, scheduled to take place between 22 and 25 October, offers a mix of live and online concerts under the artistic directorship of Rachel Podger in Brecon Cathedral and Theatr Brycheiniog; a talk with author Horatio Clare and a guided walk around Brecon’s town centre, plus a dedicated café in the town’s popular hub, The Muse.
Walk with Bach
This autumn sees the launch of a brand-new adventure for the Festival entitled ‘Walk with Bach’, a three-year programme exploring the life and music of JS Bach from his early days in Arnstadt and Lübeck to his most prolific years in Weimar and Cothen and finally to the end of his life in Leipzig. Artistic Director Rachel Podger will lead her own ensemble, Brecon Baroque, and a line-up of guest artists including Trinity Baroque directed by Julian Podger, Fretwork and The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments, to explore the rich tapestry of JS Bach’s life and music.
