Bachcelona, Festival Bach of Barcelona


7th edition of the Bach Festival of Barcelona, an international festival with performers from all over Europe coming to Barcelona to perform the music of the German genius in some of the most emblematic areas of the city such as the Palau de la Música, the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, La Pedrera or the Palau Güell.

Bachcelona wants to be something more than a concert program and always aim to enhance the experience, interaction, outreach and the more playful aspects of Bach's music with other activities such as silent film sessions with music by J.S. Bach or the Swing Bach, to dance with the music of Bach (filtered through the language of jazz and the rhythms of modern music) in the gardens of Sant Pau.

Bachcelona was born as the enrichment of the project, already underway in Barcelona, Bach zum Mitsingen, which since 2011 has been programming the integral cycle of J.S.Bach cantatas in a participatory format.
