Brecon Baroque Festival 2021

The 2021 Brecon Baroque Festival took place between 22 and 25 October. We launched the Festival’s new three-year adventure, ‘Walk with Bach’, and this year’s programming focussed on J S Bach’s early years and influences. Artistic Director Rachel Podger led 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. We also featured two Historical Walks around Brecon Town Centre for the first time.

Online Festival Pass

We are delighted to offer the Festival’s three main Bach events online from Saturday 30 October to Wednesday 1 December for £12 so that fans can enjoy the Festival’s highlights or watch them again if they attended the events live in Brecon. The three online events are:

  • ‘Shaping the Baroque’, directed by Julian Podger
  • ‘Mostly Johann’ with Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque
  • Lindsay Kemp’s talk ‘Something of his Art’

The 2021 Live Festival is now over but please enjoy the trailer for the 2021 Online Festival Pass.
