The background

All Souls

Jos van Veldhoven returns to the Bach Society for a comforting All Souls concert. The ‘programmer-avant la lettre’ of this original programme is Johannes Brahms.

a starring role for vocal-instrumental repertoire“

His heartening Ein deutsches Requiem, with words from Martin Luther's German translation of the Bible, forms the starting point for a seventeenth-century remake by Jos. Our former artistic director compiled a requiem to the words used by Brahms, with a starring role for vocal-instrumental repertoire. The result is an All Souls programme as could only be created by Jos van Veldhoven: exciting from start to finish, yet still in balance. It is a concert that offers hope to loved ones, survivors and anyone in need of comfort.

Our concerts in Naarden, Utrecht and Amsterdam are available in a subscription. Please contact our Ticket sales & information department.
