Bachinstitut und Bachchor Frankfurt (M) e.V.

Founded in the commemorative Bach year 2000 on 21 March, the 315 birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach, the Bach Institute and Bach Choir Frankfurt am Main has the objective of introducing the total work of Bach to new circles of listeners, particularly young people, also using the medium of discussion concerts.

The artistic repertoire covers the entire work of Bach, as well as outstanding works that Bach influenced and those that stand in his succession. Of special significance is the dialogue of interpretations of Bach works by diverse performers: soloists, chamber choir, large choir and boys' choir, as well as vis à vis of old and new instruments.

In addition to the actual Bach Choir, a mixed chamber choir, other ensembles participate in individual performances, for example, the Posen Boys' Choir and Orchestra, and those which are particularly connected with the work of Bach, such as the Prague Bach Orchestra and experienced vocal and instrumental soloists.

Excerpts from press echoes:
"In professionalism the ensemble is on a level with famous English formations. A meticulous and smooth interpretation is even then guaranteed when the 22 singers have to form a double choir (Frankfurter Rundschau, 12 Oct 2000).
"In conjunction with the committed and infallibly performing Prague Bach Orchestra, the outstandingly well-prepared Frankfurt Bach Choir gave a brilliantly impressive performance" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 19 April 2001).
