The annually Bach Festival in Leipzig, due to have started yesterday, was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid-19 – I had actually planned to go there…

Instead, a Bach Marathon will be streamed on YouTube and Facebook the next 2 weekends! The opening concert is Saturday 13 June at 2.30 pm, featuring the Thomanerchor and Thomaskantor Gotthold Schwarz.

The Bach Marathon website is here. Bach beats corona! 😊
