About

During a huge concert in Leipzig, the greatest jazzmen and classical musicians celebrate Bach.

In 2000 a huge musical celebration in honour of Bach was performed in front of thousands of people in the superb market place in Leipzig just in front of Saint Thomas Church where Johann Sebastian Bach worked from 1723 until his death in 1750. Leipzig could do no less to commemorate the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of its Cantor.
