CD Landsgemeindekantate

We are venturing on new realms as we release the CD with the Landsgemeindekantate «Alles Leben strömt aus Dir» composed by Rudolf Lutz (Karl Graf, libretto).

Release of CD 24

You can now order our CD N° 24 featuring the cantatas BWV 127 «Herr Jesu Christ, wahr' Mensch und Gott», BWV 156 «Ich steh mit einem Fuß im Grabe» and BWV 97 «In allen meinen Taten»

New films in JSB streaming

Four new cantata concert recordings including the workshop and reflection lecture await your discovery. The cantatas were performed and recorded in 2018. We are delighted that you share in our Bach project and support our activities via your streaming subscription.

DVDs «Bach er lebt»

Our cantata cycle for 2017 is long complete and now it’s time to look back at the concerts and rediscover the music. Together with your support, we aim to preserve and rejuvenate the cultural heritage of Bach’s vocal oeuvre. The DVD recordings are available separately or in boxed sets.

Bach's vocal oeuvre - a musical wonder of the world

Some wonders of the world can be marvelled at in awe. In the sphere of music, Bach and his compositions certainly fit the bill. But it is not enough to simply contemplate and admire his legacy: Bach’s works must be rediscovered and passed on by each generation of musicians anew – and that is the goal of our foundation.

The joy of Bach – on call

You can watch performances by the J. S. Bach Foundation in HD quality anyplace and anytime: at home on your PC, or on the road on your smartphone or tablet.
