2x Magnificat: Father & Son Bach

In December 2020, the Gaechinger Cantorey with its conductor Hans-Christoph Rademann, together with an excellent ensemble of soloists, performed the two magnificent Magnificat settings in D major by Johann Sebastian & Carl-Philipp Emannuel Bach in concert – unfortunately to an empty hall, but the audience was there via livestream and is now up close and personal via this extraordinary CD release.


Bachakademie founded 40 years ago

Johann Sebastian Bach's life path never led to Stuttgart. And yet, for 40 years now, the city in Germany's southwest has been one of the world's most important centers of Bach care. Founded here on November 16, 1981, the Stiftung Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart keeps the musical heritage of J.S. Bach, his contemporaries, predecessors and successors alive through events and outreach, entrepreneurship, education and research.


Our new music video is online!

Now available in our media library: the new music video that children created with the Bach Academy and in cooperation with dm-drogerie markt: "Music connects - A World of Peace and Harmony!" It offers a wonderful insight into the work on the "BachBewegt!Singen!" project, which experienced its climax in May 2022 with six concerts in the greater Stuttgart area!

New recording of Bach’s St Matthew Passion

The Gaechinger Cantorey’s new CD recording with Hans-Christoph Rademann opens up new perspectives on J.S. Bach’s St Matthew Passion. The recording was made in November 2020, in the midst of the Corona crisis. The recording required "a maximum of concentration and of listening to each other," while at the same time there was "an unconditional devotion and freshness in the room," says conductor Hans-Christoph Rademann about the special situation of the recording.
