The Bach festival is a very important musical festival in Leipzig that attracts 75 000 visitors every year. Musical pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach and other important classical composers are performed in different locations all around the city centre in more than 100 events.
This year’s motto is “Ein schoen new Lied – Musik und Reformation” (A beautiful new song – music and reformation). You can listen to many pieces by Bach which are related to lutheran chorals and to the reformation.
There is also a “Bach Open Air” at the market place in Leipzig which is free of charge and a good opportunity for those who want to enjoy classical music in a relaxed environment.
