The goal and purpose of the J. S. Bach Foundation is to, over the course of 25 or so years, perform the complete vocal works by Johann Sebastian Bach. Every month, one of the more than 200 Bach cantatas is performed in the town of Trogen in Appenzell, Switzerland. With a rhythm of 12 cantatas per year, the project is estimated to conclude in the year 2030. The main aim of this project is to provide a living Bach experience for today’s listeners and to deepen our understanding of the great composer’s works. Rudolf Lutz is the artistic director of the foundation. He rehearses and conducts all performances with the choir, orchestra and solo vocalists. This release presents BWV 48, BWV 90, and BWV 131.
