Münchener Bach-Chor

choir
Biography

Founded in 1954 by Karl Richter, The Munich Bach Choir has since 2005 been directed by conductor, organist and harpsichordist Hansjörg Albrecht, under whose direction it has become celebrated for its clear and transparent sound, and for its agile, animated, historically-informed performances of Bach’s works. Recent years have also seen constant expansion of its repertoire. It works particularly closely with the Munich Bach Orchestra – with whom it recorded Enjott Schneider’s oratorio Augustinus in 2015 – and Bach Collegium München. Projects with other major orchestras and conductors include, in October 2018, its very first tour to Israel, invited by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Zubin Mehta, singing Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Uri Brener’s symphonic poem The Prophet.
