ignm Basel «Bach & Present»

United Instruments of Lucilin

The musicians of United Instruments Lucilin present a concert entitled "Bach & Present", in which the music of Johann Sebastian Bach is juxtaposed with that of contemporary composers. The alternation of contemporary pieces selected by Lucilin - works by Anna Meredith (UK), Donnacha Dennehy (IRL), Pierre Jodlowski (FR), Asia Ahmetjanova (LV/HE) and Christopher Adler (US) - and excerpts from the famous Goldberg Variations in a continuous concert makes for a captivating and harmonious musical journey that will delight all music lovers.
