Amsterdam Bach Soloists (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 1985 - Amsterdam, the Netherlands

In 1985, inspired by the authentic way of performing, a few members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra decided to found the Amsterdam Bach Soloists.

The Amsterdam Bach Soloists play modern instruments but have also worked closely with renowned baroque specialists such as Frans Brüggen, Ton Koopman, Marc Minkowski, Christophe Coin and Roy Goodman. Whenever their repertoire allows them, the Amsterdam Bach Soloists play without a conductor, led by their principal violinist, Henk Rubingh.

Their concerts in Utrecht and Amsterdam are constantly well attended just like their annual performance of Bach's Christmas Oratorio (BWV 248).

The Amsterdam Bach Soloists have performed all over Europe as well as in Japan and in the USA. They have worked with musicians such as Anner Bylsma, Thomas Zehetmair, Michael Chance, Charlotte Margiono and Andreas Scholl.

Since they were founded they have produced a varied range of CD's.
