Neues Bachisches Collegium Musicum Leipzig (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 1979 - Leipzig, Germany

In 1979 members of the Gewandhaus Orchestra founded Das Neues Bachisches Collegium Musicum Leipzig (= NBCML). The name refers to the ‘Collegium Musicum’ founded by G.P. Telemann in 1702, which J.S. Bach himself headed from 1729. The Thomaskantor gave regular concerts in Leipzig’s coffee-houses with the orchestra, which mainly comprised students, and wrote many works for this ensemble including many of his secular cantatas (for example, the Coffee Cantata BWV 211).

The NBCML has continued this tradition: In many concerts and on numerous recordings, its members have proved themselves as highly-qualified Bach specialists, equal in virtuosity and their enjoyment of music-making to their role model.
