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.

Rudolf Lutz with an improvisation on the grand piano
The actions against Covid-19 prohibit us from performing the cantata BWV 4 “Christ lag in Todesbanden”. But Rudolf Lutz will show at the organ that the parts of the cantata BWV 4 “Christ lag in Todesbanden” could also be interpreted as chorale preludes. We are happy that we can share this event with the world as a livestream.
As a small foretaste, you will see Rudolf Lutz with an improvisation on the grand piano. His son, Samuel Lutz (who also produced the video), asked him for an improvisation on the following terms: “Desert wandering”, “Shimmer of Hope” and “New World”.
