Thuringian Bach Festival

The Thuringian Bach Festival is the biggest music festival in the Thuringia region. 'Reformation and Music' provides the theme for a musical celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach and the rest of the Bach dynasty in towns and cities associated with their name. Venues include Bach's House and the church where he was baptised in Eisenach, places where he composed in Mühlhausen, Arnstadt and Weimar and the former homes of his ancestors in Erfurt and Wechmar, plus others in Gotha, Jena, Ohrdruf, Schmalkalden and Waltershausen. All bear witness to a great musical legacy and provide the setting for a series of high-calibre concerts ending on 22 April 2012.
