A Bachland Pilgrimage
Gaechinger Cantorey || Bach: Weimar cantatas BWV 12, 21, and 182

On the occasion of the highly-praised cantata cycle in Leipzig last summer, Deutschlandfunk singled out the concentration of “text and music to create an intense message of faith” and therefore clarified what is special about the Gaechinger Cantorey and their conductor Hans-Christoph Rademann. Emanating from Stuttgart the musicians of the Bach Academy there set out to make audible an authentic approach to Bach at the highest level, as is impressively demonstrated in their concerts and recordings.

Now, the Internationale Bach Akademie Stuttgart will appear in Bach’s country in Thuringia – and thus provide a wonderful opportunity to experience significant works of Bach in Rademann’s excellent interpretations condensed into a weekend. The historic Bach locations of Eisenach, Dornheim, Weimar and Arnstadt offer settings which are both beautiful and inspiring, the famous soloists for their part guarantee an exceptional experience. An intense weekend full of Bach from the early Weimar cantatas to the B Minor Mass: there can scarcely be a better cooperative activity between the Bach Academy and our festival!
