Motets in Leipzig is part of a new three-year project dedicated to the exploration of the motet in all its forms. Generally sacred and a cappella, the motet is an opportunity for composers to play with rich choral harmonies, often eight voices, and to combine music and theology through a text-led musical rhetoric. For this concert, we will begin with the
‘Kapellmeister’ and quintessential master of counterpoint, Johann Sebastian Bach, moving on to discover several other composers who were influenced by this musical and collegial city, namely Mendelssohn, Homilius, Grieg, Wagner and Reger.
