The Baroque ensemble BachPlus was founded by Bart Naessens in Bruges in 2010. It has performed in concert series in Bruges, Aalst and Aardenburg and has given numerous concerts in all major Flemish cities, also abroad. The focus of its repertoire is first and foremost on the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, among them many cantatas, also the Magnificat, the St John and St Matthew Passions, also the Christmas Oratorioand the Mass in B Minor. In their concerts and recordings the ensemble frequently juxtaposes his music to that of his contemporaries and predecessors. In 2021 BachPlus will be heard for the first time at the Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival.
