Bachipedia – a project of the J.S. Bach Foundation
The J.S. Bach Foundation is performing the entire vocal oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach in an ambitious concert cycle lasting around 25 years. The first concert took place in 2006, and since then, all introductory workshops, concerts and reflective lectures have been recorded on video. Over the years, we have amassed an extensive collection of audio and film material as well as other content related to the master’s works. One of the Foundation’s aims is to raise the profile of Bach’s vocal oeuvre – especially among the young. To this end, the Foundation established the “Bachipedia” platform.

The "Concerto in Re" for the Bach Orchestras of the World - a tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach by Rudolf Lutz
In 2020, Prof. Rudolf Lutz commissioned a „Concerto in Re per diversi strumenti“ for two violins, viola, bassoon, violoncello and basso continuo which premiered on June 16, 2022 at the International Bach Festival in Leipzig’s Old Town Hall.
The concerto is both a tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) and a gift to the Bach orchestras of the world.
The concerto is in the public domain, meaning anyone can perform or record it without needing to purchase a license or pay a royalty.
For this purpose, the entire score and an audio recording under the direction of the composer is available here for download.
