Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is the most powerful and most influential composer of all times. While Bach’s greatest works form the core of the programming we also want to show how his music continues to inspire musicians until today.

The International Bach Festival was founded in 2015 by friends of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra from Amsterdam and their colleagues from the Orquesta Filarmónica de Gran Canaria. They invite young talented musicans from all over Europe. Together they perform the great works of Johann Sebastian Bach and his fellow composers.

IBF Canarias is much more than an ordinary music festival. It is driven by musicians who are passionate about reaching out to new generations of musicians and listeners alike. In the week before Easter it highlights a great number of performances of orchestra and chambermusic. The highlight is a performance of Bach’s most famous works such as his great Passions.
