In the era of baroque music – the era of Johann Sebastian Bach – artists acknowledged that music has great healing powers. Bach composed his music with the idea in mind that music gives us comfort and consolation. Sounding Bodies’ Jacqueline Hamelink approaches the music of Bach as a way of having a conversation with the listener. “By engaging with the audience on a personal level, you connect to the listeners, allowing them to experience the music on a deep emotional level”.
Hamelink has developed a method to play the music of Bach with her cello in the most intimate way for her audience. Her personal interpretation of the music is closely related to the original intention with which the music is composed, entirely in accordance with the musical rhetoric and the theory of affect. During the Food experience she brings A taste of Bach with four outstanding musicians which she trained in her method. When they play, the music becomes a recipe for pure happiness. You’ll enjoy this performance during the first day of CWF2019 on 21 October.
