Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart
founded by Helmuth Rilling in 1981 | Gaechinger Cantorey | JSB Ensemble | Akademie Director: Hans-Christoph Rademann | General Manager: Gernot Rehrl
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 will be our 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.
»Is there any way to do it better? The choir? The orchestra? The soloists? Hardly! This recording of Bachs Mass in B minor is excellent! Not too much of a surprise, looking at the musicians involved.« (Mannheimer Morgen)
»The new artistic director of the Bachakademie Stuttgart, Hans-Christoph Rademann, is celebrating a magnificent debut with this recording. No question: It is the beginning of a new era for Stuttgart.« (rbb Kulturradio)
