Appenzell Bach Days 2022 under the motto “light and dark”

Creating expressive moods, creating dramatic effects, shining a spotlight on what moves people deep inside: this is what painting in the late Renaissance and Baroque periods used strong light-dark contrasts for. Johann Sebastian Bach’s music is also characterised by such contrasts. Sometimes everything shines in glittering light, sometimes a poor soul despairs in threatening darkness. Contradictions, differences and deviations will be illuminated by the Appenzell Bach Days 2022 under the guiding theme of “light and dark”. The five-day summer festival offers space for controversial discussions and exciting confrontations. To find a common denominator after all? Light and dark aspects ultimately only unfold their effect in relation to each other.
