Bach 2000

2000 was a Bach memorial year, so more than 70,000 visitors poured into the German town of Leipzig to celebrate and enjoy over over 90 concerts. A lot of renowned artists from all over the world performed there, each of them honouring Bach in their own personal way. Leipzig was the centre of the music world that year !

German Brass, the amazing brass ensemble from Germany, was among the many artists who were invited to perform in Leipzig that year. For this occasion the group, including members from top German orchestras,  prepared a whole program of Bach arrangements which they performed and recorded live in the St. Thomas church.
It turned out to be an absolutely amazing recording, a must have item in any musicians library :) Enjoy !

  1. These recordings are great. German Brass is fantastic. Have you ever tried performing the BWV 972? I imagine its way over most students heads, what do you think?
