The J. S. Bach Foundation of St. Gallen aims to make the entire vocal works of Johann Sebastian Bach accessible to contempory audiences. Every month it performs one of the baroque master’s cantatas at the church in Trogen, Appenzell.


Rudolf Lutz is Artistic Director of the J. S. Bach Foundation of St. Gallen. Together with experienced musicians, he established the Choir and Orchestra of the J. S. Bach Foundation as well as a permanent ensemble of soloists.


The monthly cantata performances in Trogen are recorded on both CD and DVD. All cantata texts and reflection lectures are published annually in a Bach Anthology.
