About This Performance

The organist at the Thomaskirche, Bach’s famous church in Leipzig, Ullrich Böhme ties together works by Bach, Liszt, and Wagner through a fascinating web of anniversaries and interrelationships. For example, Christian Theodor Weinlig was the cantor at the Thomaskirche and also taught Wagner composition. And as 2013 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Wagner, it is also the 300th birthday of Bach’s own pupil Johann Ludwig Krebs.

Come for:

One of Germany’s finest organists: Ulrich Böhme became organist at Bach’s old church in 1985, the 300th anniversary of Bach’s death.

And more:

Musical six degrees of separation!
