The second edition of the festival Bach Bridges at the BMC has been realised in cooperation with musicians of the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Festivallinks with the artistic direction of Michael Gieler and Péter Szabó. In Festivallinks a number of European music festivals cooperate to create innovative artistic content, which will travel across Europe between 2018 and 2020.
The first part of the concert is brought to you by Hiljaisuus Festivaali, based in the very north of Finland. Their programs combine old and contemporary music with acrobatics. Circus artists and musicians join forces to find new forms of poetic expression.
Trumpet player Miroslav Petkov and pianist Dimitar Bodurov feel equally comfortable playing Bach as they are in jazz or avant-garde electronic music. Nevertheless they always stay close to their own musical roots: Bulgarian folk music. Musical friends from the Budapest Festival Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra from Amsterdam join them on a unique musical journey.

October 4th 13:30 Bach Bridges Extra: Gloire - Silent Movie Concert
