„Too heavy and pompous“, „harmoniously overloaded“, „composed against the true singing nature“ - below the surface of the unanimous enthusiasm for Bach there has always been an undercurrent of sceptical statements that critically examined individual aspects of Bach's art or even comprehensively rejected his work. Much of this history has proved to be a narrow-minded prejudice, but many observations conceal a deep insight into the problems and peculiarities of Bach's composing, which in fact challenges listeners and musicians in an unusual way and sometimes also presents them with extremely ungrateful and complex tasks. This concert brings together and comments on legendary and lesser known Bach insults from four centuries and thus subjects the music of the Master to an equally entertaining as enlightening test.
