The Thomanerchor Leipzig, which in 2012 celebrates the 800th anniversary of its foundation, shares this very special all-Bach concert with the Academy’s Baroque Orchestra.
Leipzig’s famous boys’ choir is paying this rare visit to London as the latest recipients of the Royal Academy of Music Bach Prize. This prestigious prize, sponsored by the Kohn Foundation, is presented annually to recognise an outstanding contribution to the performance and/or scholarly study of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Professor Christoph Wolff, who was himself awarded the Prize in 2006, commented: ‘This represents a wonderful recognition of what is one of the oldest and continuously active performing ensembles in the world, whose one-time conductor was none other than JSB himself. This honours him posthumously!’
