Johann Sebastian Bach
Johann Sebastian Bach (21 March 1685, O.S.31 March 1685, N.S. - 28 July 1750, N.S.) was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he did not introduce new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, an unrivalled control of harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France.

Revered for their intellectual depth, technical command and artistic beauty, Bach's works include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Partitas, The Well-Tempered Clavier, the Mass in B minor, the St Matthew Passion, the St John Passion, the Magnificat, the Musical Offering, The Art of Fugue, the English and French Suites, the Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, the Cello Suites, more than 200 surviving cantatas, and a similar number of organ works, including the famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, and the Great Eighteen Chorale Preludes and Organ Mass.

Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected throughout Europe during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the main composers of the Baroque style, and as one of the greatest composers of all time.

About Leipzig


bach festival leipzig location

Leipzig is, with a population of over 504,000, the largest city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany. It is situated at the confluence of the Rivers Pleisse, White Elster and Parthe. Leipzig is well-known for its university and its trade fair. Germany's first labor party was founded in the city. Leipzig's name is derived from the Slavic word Lipsk, which means "settlement where the linden trees (US; lime trees in UK) stand".

Johann Sebastian Bach worked in Leipzig from 1723 to 1750, conducting the St. Thomas Church Choir, at the St. Thomas Church, the St. Nicholas Church and the Paulinerkirche, the university church of Leipzig (destroyed in 1968).

The Bach-Archiv for documentation and research of life and work of Bach and also of the Bach family was founded in Leipzig in 1950 by Werner Neumann. The Bach-Archiv organizes the prestigious International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition, initiated in 1950 as part of a music festival marking the bicentennial of Bach's death. The competition is now held every two years in three changing categories. The Bach-Archiv also organizes performances, especially the international festival Bachfest Leipzig (de) and runs the Bach-Museum.

So glorious you stand, dear city!
Bishop Thietmar of Merseburg immortalised the town of »urbe libzi« in his chronicle in the year 1015. The Bachfest will be joining in the celebrations surrounding the millennium of this first documentary record of Leipzig. The cantata »Praise, o Jerusalem, the Lord«, from the libretto of which the Bachfest 2015 motto is taken, was written in August 1723 for the church service honouring the election of the city council. With this song of praise to the »dear city«, Johann Sebastian Bach’s librettist is not just referring to the »Holy City«; with subtle ambiguity he also refers to the sovereignty and governmental responsibility of the new authority, whom God has put in place.
The programme of Bachfest 2015 will be marked in a great variety of ways by musical works that were composed in the »dear city«, or which have a direct link to its continuously pulsating musical scene. The St Thomas’s Boys Choir and the Gewandhaus Orchestra, the cantor of St Thomas’s Georg Christoph Biller, the President of the Bach Archive Sir John Eliot Gardiner, and the music director of the Gewandhaus Riccardo Chailly, look forward to playing host to some excellent musicians and ensembles from Germany and abroad: Collegium Vocale Gent under the baton of Philippe Herreweghe, Masaaki Suzuki with the graduates of the London Royal Academy of Music and the Juilliard School New York, Gächinger Kantorei conducted by Hans-Christoph Rademann, our ensemble-in-residence, Collegium 1704, conducted by Václav Luks, and many more besides.
In 2015, the church of St Nicholas’s in Leipzig, or Nikolaikirche, will be celebrating its 850th anniversary – reason enough to move the opening concert by St Thomas’s Boys Choir to the place where the cantata honouring the election of the city council, »Praise, o Jerusalem, the Lord«, was originally performed under Bach’s conductorship. To you, our friends and guests, we present it also as a song of praise to our »glorious«, »dear city«, and to set the mood for a Bachfest Leipzig 2015 that is full of promise.
