Of all of Bach's Clavierübungen (which also include the Italian Concerto and Goldberg Variations), the Dritter Teil is the least well known to the general public. Only organists occasionally include excerpts from the work in their concert programmes.
Wouter Dekoninck took it on himself to give the Dritter Teil der Clavierübung life and soul for today's audiences, but still using Bach's authentic language. He translated the organ score into the melodic sound of Bach's baroque orchestra, added the original Lutheran chorale texts on top and built vocal scores based on the text and music. The result is a monumental mass in German for singers and baroque orchestra called Grosse Messe Protected content Bach und Luther.
Everyone buys his own ticket. Price: 25 Euros (pre-sale 22 Euros).
Meeting point: at 19:40 in front of the church. We will enter at 19:50 sharp. Places are not numbered (except VIP places).
