Brecon Baroque Festival 2020 Online October 23 – 25

Brecon Baroque Festival 2020 Online - October 23-25; Gwyl Faroc Aberhonddu 2020 Arlein - Hydref 23-25

At the heart of our online festival weekend, we are delighted to present The Goldberg Variations Reimagined.

The Festival’s Artistic Director, Rachel Podger, has commissioned harpsichordist Chad Kelly to create an ambitious reimagining of Bach’s Goldberg Variations for nine instruments. Our online festival programme will open on October 23rd, and will première our live film of the new arrangement, led by Rachel and Chad, with supporting documentary and interactive material.

Full details of how to view Brecon Baroque Festival 2020 Online will be available here soon. There will be a charge to view, with income going to ensure the festival’s future and to fund a CD recording of the Goldbergs by Rachel and Brecon Baroque.

The film was shot in Brecon Cathedral in August, and was amongst the earliest UK projects to bring musicians to work together as the Covid-19 lockdown eased.
