The Tölzer Knabenchor hardly needs an introduction. For almost 70 years, its name has been the epitome of a very special sound, characterized by great homogeneity, luminous treble, precise intonation and clear articulation. Under Michael Hofstetter, who has been the choir's first guest conductor since this summer, the Tölzer Knabenchor now presents - for the first time on the Christophorus label – an album with motets of the Bach family after an enforced Corona break. The Bach musical dynasty comprises about 80 musicians, and very few of them are still known to us today. This selection brings together motets by the Bach family in the 17th century, beginning with Johann Bach, the great-uncle, and ending with Johann Sebastian Bach as the central figure of this dynasty. It shows the consistently high compositional quality in the tradition of this unique musical family.
