All begins with Bach

Together with cellist Joachim Eijlander and Merlijn Kerkhof, writer of the book Alles begint bij Bach, Merel developed a new show, which was premiered at the Erasmushuis in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2017. The show has a Dutch and an English version.

Johann Sebastian Bach is probably the most famous of all classical composers. But who was he? And what makes his music so special?

In an engaging show the young and brilliant Dutch violinist Merel Vercammen and cellist superstar Joachim Eijlander try to tackle these questions with Merlijn Kerkhof, a young and bestselling author on classical music in the Netherlands. As Merel and Joachim will play some of Bach’s best music for violin and cello, as well as music from other great composers, Merlijn will be your guide through music history.
