Johann Sebastian Bach:

Even after half a century of “historical performance practice,” no one can say with certainty how the music of a Vivaldi, Handel, or Bach really sounded. “Well, we interpreters of historical performance practices also all have different approaches,” says Giovanni Antonini in an interview with the online magazine niusic. “It's not about the truth of interpretation, it’s about interpreting the material in the first place. We’re never really sure.” “This attempt at authenticity has not really been a focus in recent years,” he says elsewhere. Rather, it is about playing the music so that it appeals to the listener of today. Top ensembles such as Il Giardino Armonico and the Freiburger Barockorchester have been demonstrating for many years how this works. Both can be heard at the festival, and in each case with three of Bach’s famous Brandenburg Concertos – which means: you just have to visit both concerts and compare them.
