From Bach, via Bach arrangements, wandering through Romanticism and arriving at more modern times … Along these lines runs the route that Janine Jansen has set out for the Walking Concerts. Your ears cover great distances, both in place and in time. And: there are more roads that lead to Rome. For both routes in these Walking Concerts, Bach counts as alpha and omega: the first panel in the Geertekerk is a Leipzig chapter, entirely devoted to the great master himself. Janine Jansen, Daniel Blendulf, Clara Andrada de la Calle and Jan Jansen sign for this. After that this route then follows the New Generation musicians through a Norwegian vision of Handel and then takes Arensky’s Second String Quartet to a pre-eminently globalist program of four saxophonists. They take a look at Bach again, but then in a fashionable Italian jacket, they follow a Scottish Mendelssohn, visit a divergent France and then also visit the Poland of Urszula Kulesza. Have you become tired after all this? Then find a quiet place to meditate. If you end up in a Parisian cemetery, make sure to be away before midnight! Because then Saint-Saëns shows you all corners of the cemetery …
