Jesu, meine Freude

Bach’s best pupil in the spotlight
They may have missed each other by more than half a century, but the relationship between Bach and Mendelssohn is crystal clear. For the opening of the Bach Academy Bruges, Philippe Herreweghe has put together an atmospheric programme, with choral motets, in which the Romantic composer looks back tenderly at his Baroque hero.
