Johann Sebastian Bach in music and theatre, specially adapted for young people!
For this 2022 edition of the Rencontres Musicales de Champéry, the musicians Lise Viricel, Alice Julien-Laferrière and Mathieu Valfré will perform a theatrical concert dedicated to children!
On 21 March 1745, three of Johann Sebastian Bach’s children (he had twenty!) met in secret to prepare a surprise for his 60th birthday. While rehearsing the pieces they would play for him with their brothers and sisters, they evoked their personal relationship with this father who had enthusiastically passed on this musical family fibre to his children. Seven harpsichords, eleven stringed instruments and a small spinet – that’s all the instruments in the Bach household. It was a beehive full of life and notes that the performers will bring back to life for the happiness of our children.
– A snack will be offered to each child after the show!
– Reservations required.
Doors open at 14:45.
