Sublime and awe-inspiring, the Mass in B Minor is seen as one of the supreme achievements of classical music, and the most beautiful of Johann Sebastian Bach’s choral works. Maestro Piotr Gajewski and the National Philharmonic Chorale enliven a masterwork that is at times transcendent, and at others an intimate meditation. Bach’s Mass in B Minor is most inspiring when experienced in person, and can spark an appreciation of classical in the most hesitant of music lovers. 

Why We Love This Concert

  • Bach is a coffee enthusiast. He reportedly frequente coffee shops in Leipzig while it was explicitly against the law. He also wrote "The Coffee Cantata" to show his love for the drink. Any coffee fan is a friend of mine
  • This mass brings Bach’s music full circle. He used music written throughout his entire career in this piece which became his last major work
