It is a summation of his life as a composer – in his Mass in B minor, Johann Sebastian Bach once again amalgamated a multitude of influences into extraordinary music. At Musikfest Berlin 2023 the orchestra and choir of Collegium Vocale Gent will come together with a cast of distinguished soloists to perform this interdenominational work. The conductor is Philippe Herreweghe, whose work with Collegium Vocale Gent was celebrated at Musikfest Berlin last year.
