‘From pre-Enlightenment to post-Enlightenment - can we understand our present world through the debates of the Enlightenment era?’

Considering the sheer amount of music JS Bach produced in his lifetime, it’s easy to imagine his work being fuelled by a strong coffee. In fact, coffee was indeed one of Bach’s great pleasures, and the coffee houses of eighteenth-century Leipzig featured prominently in its cultural life, as a place where music and ideas were freely exchanged by artists and intellectuals. In this unique event, we reimagine the special atmosphere of the Enlightenment coffee house, performing works by Bach and some of his famous and forgotten contemporaries. As part of the event, renowned Bach expert John Butt will lead a debate with this thought provoking talk about Bach and his contemporaries. Come along and take all of this in, coffee-in-hand!
