The Bach for Everyone Festival was launched in 2015 with the aim of bringing classical music to everyone. The programmes expanded continuously and by 2019 had become Hungary's most extensive classical music festival, with Müpa Budapest also joining in. Sharing the same values and aims, the artists of the Bach for Everyone Festival will perform twenty concerts at Müpa Budapest in March 2020.
This exhibition being presented as part of the Bach for Everyone Festival held across the wor...ld around the time of Bach's birthday on March 21 will, for two weeks, offer a glimpse into the room where one of the greatest musical geniuses in history composed his works.
Few others have understood the laws of how music operates better than Johann Sebastian Bach, whose counterpoint work continues to this day to provide an unsurpassable model to generations of composers. This exhibition put together by music historian Gergely Fazekas guides visitors through the world of fugues, canons and symmetrical musical structures and into the pure intellectual space of music steered by mathematical relationships. Aiding visitors to gain insights into the thinking of what may have been Europe's most influential composer will be a host of contemporary manuscripts, theoretical works, first-edition scores, illustrative diagrams and explanations and, naturally, passages of music.
