Johann Sebastian Bach: Messe h-moll (si mineur) BWV 232

Appearing to the listener as a unified work, Bach’s Mass in B-Minor was actually composed over the course of a quarter-century, and it is possible that its creator intended it merely as a kind of »portfolio« showcasing individual liturgical movements. 19th-century musical life, however, decided that all movements merited a joint performance in the concert hall. Sir John Eliot Gardiner – one of the world’s most competent Bach performers – continues this performance tradition in Luxembourg now, and of course the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists follow the latest insights of historically informed performance practice. The concert is preceded by an introductory lecture in German by the musicologist Hagen Kunze at 7:15 pm.
