A comic imagining, in the vein of Stoppard, of 18th Century rivals gathering
to compete for the position of Leipzig's Thomaskantor.
Politics, religion, and fragile egos collide in a desperate competition
before their hopes are dashed by the history trumpeted in the title of the play.

Notes from the Director

He makes even silence . . . gorgeous.

—Georg Schott in Itamar Moses’ Bach at Leipzig

Whenever I have the chance to spend a few hours at an art museum, I always leave changed. As I walk away, I see colors and patterns and shapes differently. I see “art” everywhere and have a new awareness of the beauty surrounding me. Great art has this effect.

Great music has a similar effect on sound and silence. The musician Johann Fasch tells his wife in the play, “From an early age, my gingersnap, I heard everything in nature—from the squeak of wheels on a passing stagecoach to the slap of feet in mud puddles—as melodies and harmonies.”

Is this what happens? The artist or the musician sees or hears deeply into everyday life and translates it into art or music, which in turn makes us see the beauty in life? In any case, this play, Bach at Leipzig, has made me hear fugues everywhere—in cafés, in traffic, in the sounds of crickets and wind—one melody joining with another in counterpoint, then reflecting back again as another voice enters. The play is itself a kind of fugue, which you shall soon see.

But this play is also about tender egos, the endless splintering of religious factions, envy, the veneration of a teacher, the spirit of competition, and the desire for a father’s love, among many other subjects. In fact, the play is so rich that we are still discovering meanings and parallels and connections, even in the last few rehearsals.

We hope you enjoy the play as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together. And we hope you leave the theatre a little changed, a little more aware of the beauty (and laughter) around you.

Music Director’s Notes

The “character” of Johann Sebastian Bach makes its biggest impact in the music throughout Bach at Leipzig. In the same way that one plays a crab canon backwards to understand the true beauty of its harmonies, Bach’s contemporaries provide us with a rich context to hear and more fully appreciate the vast catalogue Bach left behind. Heard throughout the play are selections from Prelude and Fugue in A Minor (BWV 543), Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor (BWV 582), Musikalisches Opfer, BWV 1079: Ricercare a 6 (BWV 1079), and Jesu bleibet meine Freude (BWV 147).

My deepest thanks to Chris Babbie for his pivotal role in bringing the sounds of the Thomaskirche’s organ into our space and to my dear friend Vicki Brown, whose musical preshow provides us a varied and rich offering of some of Bach’s works.

—Jake Sorgen, Music Director and Sound Designer
