Following the success of last November’s Bath Mozart Minifest, we were delighted to colaborate with Bath Bachfest to host their virtual festival in February.

This year there were four Bachfest concerts over two days, with an inspiring programme of outstanding artists playing glorious music by J S Bach and his Baroque contemporaries. The concerts, which were streamed live from WMC, are now available to Watch Again for seven days after the initial broadcasts on 19-20 February.

Please click on the artist name below for full programme details.

Bath Bachfest: Support Us

Bath Bachfest relies on private donations and sponsorship and is only able to continue each year with support from its music lovers. In 2021, this support is more important than ever.

"We hope that you will find these mid-winter concerts, at a rather bleak time, life-enhancing and uplifting. Despite pared back costs we will still nowhere near break even on the Bachfest but feel that it is important for us as an organisation, for our audiences and for the artists, that the music continues.

If you are able to help us, please open the Support Us page on our website, or simply click on the Donate Now button below. Thank you." - Bath Bachfest
