At the beginning of May, the first CD with the new Gaechinger Cantorey was released under the title »Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort«. In October 2017 the next CD with Bach's Christmas Oratorio will follow under the direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann. The DVD of the wonderful performance of St. Matthew's Passion in the context of BACHBEWEGT! TANZ! is completely new! The DVD can be purchased at a special price during our Musikfest.
In 2011 to 2015, every year for the Bach Week our own international orchestra and choir, the Young Stuttgart Bach Ensemble (JSB Ensemble), was drawn together from over twenty countries. For the MUSIKFESTUTTGART 2017 this JSB Ensemble was our wonderful festival ensemble!
Bach‘s Christmas Oratorio danced by students – the Bachakademie’s music education programme BACHBEWEGT! is a complete hit! Most of the kids come into contact with Bach’s wonderful music for the first time and show what a deeply moving experience this is. BACHBEWEGT! ist the Bachakademie‘s groundbreaking music education programme for kids.
