The background

Marjolijn van Heemstra about the Apocalypse

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: the Apocalypse. With: writer Marjolijn van Heemstra.

Marjolijn van Heemstra, author of In lichtjaren heeft niemand haast (In Light-Years There’s No Hurry), poses questions about time and space. Her ideas about the cosmos and how humanity relates to it are given shape in a hopeful programme about the end of time. An appropriate selection from Bach’s vocal oeuvre forms a nice counterpart.

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