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.
