Bach's Prince

21 March 2023/ Germany / Eisanach

Three years of travelling through Europe by coach and ship, 200 pages of diary, 300 pages of accounts, astronomic expenses of 55.749 talers: 17-years-old Price Leopold of Anhalt-Koethen would hit the headlines these days. On his grand tour he treasured up political, sociocultural and other “experiences of life” in passing. He purchased antiques, art, curiosities but also printed music for his court in Koethen. What among all this might have later inspired J.S.Bach?
Hamburger Ratsmusik has compiled original texts and musical impressions of this journey in an enjoyable program, thus celebrating Bach’s 338th birthday in his birthplace in Eisenach.
