Bozar puts Bach on the big screen

From hip-hop dancing on his fugues and chorales to theatre based on his cantatas: the Bach Heritage Festival in Bozar is once more shedding a unique light on the music of the German baroque-era composer Johann Sebastian Bach.

Not to be missed is Lebenslicht, the film concert that kicks off the five-day festival. Clara Pons’s film is wordless, but it’s not a silent movie, as the renowned baroque-performers Collegium Vocale take the role of musical narrators, telling the story of three generations of men through Bach’s music.
