Just a few weeks before his 90th birthday, the Swedish conductor, Herbert Blomstedt, will be gifting himself a special birthday present: conducting Bach’s “Opus ultimum”, the B Minor Mass, in the Leipzig Thomaskirche – the composer’s former workplace. The concert will close the Bachfest Leipzig and will be performed by the Gewandhausorchester, the Dresdner Kammerchor, and the soloists Christina Landshamer, Elisabeth Kulman, Wolfram Lattke and Luca Pisaroni on June 18. According to Blomstedt, Bach’s last complete vocal work is the climax of his creativity and is one of the most important works in his life: “It is like a reflection of doubt. It is enormously powerful music in the same way that a wedge is enormously powerful.”

This week, we are in Paris with Kremer and the orchestra, where they play two concerts with works by Arvo Pärt at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, with Pärt himself in attendance.
