The background

Abdelkader Benali about forgiveness

The series Reflect with Bach combines cantatas that prompt reflection with spoken texts about topical questions of life and death. Bach delivers the themes, and they are elaborated on by today’s writers and thinkers. Today's theme: forgiveness. With: writer Abdelkader Benali.

Thoughts on forgiveness are reflected in the timeless music of Bach. Writer Abdelkader Benali, Flemish poet Maud Vanhauwaert, presenter Lex Bohlmeijer and the Netherlands Bach Society explore the universal themes of life and offer tranquillity. The common thread is Bach's cantata Tilge, Höchster, meine Sünden, BWV 1083, an arrangement of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater.

This concert is part of the series Reflect with Bach.
Note: the language of this series Reflect with Bach is Dutch.
