Bach’s music forms the DNA of many compositions, both old and new. The general public is acquainted with Bach mainly as the composer of the St. Matthew Passion but connoisseurs venerate him as the creator of an exceptionally rich oeuvre consisting of both religious and secular music. Even today, he is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for composers, musicians and listeners. The universal quality of these works makes them ideal for combining with other disciplines and new technologies as well as for using them as the basis for groundbreaking interpretations.
