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.

Festivallinks presents: Bach Bridges II. - Ladies Night
in collaboration with Bach Festival Dordrecht (the Netherlands) and the International Bach Festival (Gran Canaria)

Cellist Lidy Blijdorp has been recognized internationally both for her refined playing and her original artistic choices. Her musical dialogue with cymbal-player Vasile Luca proves her status as one of the most interesting young musicians from the Netherlands.

The second half of the program represents the International Bach Festival from Gran Canaria. After Bach’s joyful 4th Brandenburg Concerto it will feature a world-premiere with a new work from Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski. We round off the evening with the great Spanish singer Esther Alfonso da Costa and the seductive sounds of Astor Piazzolla.
