Bach Foundation performs on historical instruments under the direction of Rudolf Lutz, who also founded the choir and orchestra in 2006. The ensemble consists of professional musicians from all over Switzerland, Germany and Austria. All members are experienced in historical performance practices and relish the challenge of exploring a contemporary and vital interpretation of Bach's cantatas.
