Several well-known names are featured soloists on this release, including Noemi Sohn Nad, Jan Borner, Wolf Matthias Friedrich, and more. The J.S. Bach Foundation has embarked on a remarkable undertaking: over a Read more period of some 25 years, the Foundation will perform the complete vocal works by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750).

With a rhythm of 12 cantatas per year, the project is estimated to conclude in the year 2030.
