LEIPZIG, Germany,October 12, 2012/PRNewswire/ --
Pre-sale starts on October 15, 2012
Next year's Bachfest Leipzig will be held from14-23 June 2013under the motto "Vita Christi". Pre-sale for Leipzig's biggest annual music festival will start onOctober 15, 2012.
http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121012/567731 Johann Sebastian Bach's Christmas Oratorio, "The St. John Passion", and the Easter and Ascension Oratorios form together a grand oratorio project which must have been a highlight in the musical life of Leipzig, Saxony, in 1734/1735. On a total of three concert evenings, these scenes from the Vita Christi will be presented in Bach's unique musical realization. The oratorios will be conducted by Trevor Pinnock and Sir John Eliot Gardiner. For the first time, the theological, dramaturgical and compositional lay lines between Bach's great oratorical works are drawn within the programme of a festival. All the musical services are dedicated to the motto "Vita Chisti": every day, cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach will be performed that illustrate the life of Christ.
Beside Sir John Eliot Gardiner and Trevor Pinnock, the Bachfest 2013 will present the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, Andreas Staier, the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra, Hermann Max, and many more. The Gewandhaus Orchestra and the St. Thomas Boys Choir take part, too, as usual. With 75,000 visitors and more than 100 events every year, the Bachfest counts among the most important international classical music festivals. Renowned artists from all over the world can be heard performing at authentic sites related to Bach in and around Leipzig. Bach lived here for 27 years between 1723 th and 1750. He headed St. Thomas Boys Choir, which is celebrating its 800 anniversary in 2012.
