Johann Christian Bach-Akademie (Chamber Orchestra)

Founded: 1991 - Köln, Germany

Since their establishment in 1991 the Johann Christian Bach-Akademie (= JCBA) have developed, by continuous and concentrated work, to a homogeneous orchestra with an extraordinarily strong self-profile.

The most standing out characteristic of the JCBA is their ability to connect stylistic articulation with subtle cantabile playing, which are particularly indispensable for real adequate interpretation of the early classical period and classical period. The concert repertoire of the JCBA includes also re-performance of works, which are performed only rarely on today's concert programmes. The JCBA are much in demand also because of their perfect and sensitive accompaniment of choirs and soloists.

Some CD recordings prove this impressively. The JCBA has performed the big choral works of J.S. Bach many In 2002 the chamber ensemble appeared, on invitation of the Deutschen Musikrates at the biggest South American Baroque festival in Bolivia in four concerts. In 2005 the orchestra played e.g. at the festival "La Folle Journée" in Nantes the L.v. Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, in Hamburg at St. Michaelis Felix Mendelssohn's Paulus. In addition, also in 2005, the ensemble with its organist Johannes Geffert performed the organ concerts Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

All members of the JCBA can look back on experiences for many years in German and European point ensembles. Every one of the musicians dedicates himself/herself in addition to intensive chamber-music activities. Thus the orchestra benefits a maximum of individual requirement concerning instrumental perfection, flexibility and joy playing.
