“I would give everything to meet Bach. Maybe that will be possible someday; we both believe in the resurrection but it might be a while until then,” Herbert Blomstedt explains regarding his special relationship to the great Thomaskantor. Just a few weeks before his 90th birthday, the Swedish conductor will, so to speak, be giving himself a special birthday present: He is conducting Bach’s “Opus ultimum”, the B Minor Mass, in the Leipzig Thomaskirche, the composer’s former workplace. For Blomstedt, Bach’s last complete vocal work and climax of his creativity is one of the central works in his life: “It is like a reflection of doubt. It is enormously powerful music in the same way that a wedge is enormously powerful.”
