Bachipedia – a project of the J.S. Bach Foundation
The J.S. Bach Foundation performs the complete vocal work of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) within 25 years. The first cantata performance took place in 2006. All introductions, concerts and reflections are recorded in sound & image. In recent years, a large pool of film and audio material as well as supplementary content to the vocal works has been produced. One of the aims of the foundation is to disseminate Bach's vocal works and, in particular, to pass them on to the youth. For this reason, the J.S. Bach Foundation has established Bachipedia.
