New in the Mediathek

»Hin und weg!« – Cantata BWV 117

Our universally moving "Hin und weg!" concert from September 2022 from the Johanneskirche am Feuersee can now be experienced in the Mediathek! Each movement of the choral cantata "Be Praise and Honor to the Highest Good" ends with the text line "Give glory to our God!" - Hans-Christoph Rademann illuminates Bach's art of forming each of the nine stanzas into its own expressive work of art. Marvel and sing along!

Concert impressions

2023 – Ten years of BachBewegt!Tanz!

With two moving and acclaimed performances of Bach's St. John Passion at the Ludwigsburg Forum am Schlosspark on February 18/19, we celebrated the tenth anniversary of the dance and music education project BachBewegt!Tanz! With a selection of pictures from the two performances, we would like to express our sincere thanks to all those involved on and behind the stage, to our sponsors, and especially to our terrific audience!


Film docu about BachBewegt!Singen!

In the 2021/22 school year, BachBewegt!Singen! reached its high point in cooperation with dm-drogerie markt: In May 2022, around 200 schoolchildren each participated in six concerts around Stuttgart. The focus was Joseph Haydn's oratorio "The Creation," which Karsten Gundermann arranged especially for this project in view of the responsibility towards our natural environment. New in the media library: the moving film documentary by Andreas Kessler.

New CD release

Joseph Haydn – The Creation

Finally on CD: In his timeless classic, Haydn creates a musical world with such a variety of tonal means of expression that one cannot escape its radiance. Haydn teaches us to "see with our ears", we hear the creation of the elements, get to see the most diverse animals before our mind's eye and experience the birth of the first human beings: the miracle of creation.
