2x Magnificat for the 2nd Advent

On December 5 at 8:30 a.m. SWR television will broadcast our concert, which exactly one year before had to take place in front of an empty hall. On the program are the Magnificats by J. S. Bach and C. Ph. E. Bach. The well-known melodies of "Vom Himmel hoch" and other Christmas carols, which resound between the movements of J. S. Bach's Magnificat, bring Christmas spirit to this second Advent weekend. The concert will remain available afterwards in the SWR Mediathek.


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 will culminate in May 2022 with seven concerts in the greater Stuttgart area!

J. S. Bach: Cantatas BWV 21 & 147

For their new CD, Hans-Christoph Rademann and the Gaechinger Cantorey, with an excellent ensemble of soloists around Núria Rial, Wiebke Lehmkuhl, Benedikt Kristjánsson and Matthias Winckhler, have selected two particularly exposed works by probably Leipzig's most famous Thomaskantor: The cantatas BWV 21 "Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis" and BWV 147 "Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben" by Johann Sebastian Bach.

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.
