Saeed Habibzadeh got the idea to translate Bach's last journey to eternity into music in summer 2018. After a few rehearsals with a small line-up, it soon became clear that this inspiration required a large symphonic orchestra. So he started the instrumentation in January 2020. It was completed in April 2020.
Bach had to say goodbye to his family many times to go on concert tours. These separations from his family were constantly painful, sad and always left behind crying children. They loved each other very much and the trips were rarely short. Bach's Last Journey is a narrative poem and represents Bach's mystical journey into eternity. A journey from which he never comes back and in which he ultimately encounters God.
The main motive of this composition was to express Saeed's deepest respect for Bach with music. This symphony is dedicated to him from the heart!
