Camerata Bachiensis was founded in 2012.
The ensemble’s repertoire consists primarily of 18th century sacred and chamber music, written by Central German composers who were either connected with J. S. Bach or influenced by local music traditions. Camerata Bachiensis has obtained important recognition from numerous Early Music competitions as the International Van Wassenaer Concours 2014 (Utrecht, the Netherlands) and the Göttinger Reihe Historischer Musik 2014/2015 (Göttingen, Germany). For the 2016/2017 season, the Bach-Museum Leipzig designated Camerata Bachiensis as its Ensemble-in-Residence.
The ensemble’s first CD, featuring world premiere recordings of music by Johann Melchior Molter, will be released in 2016 by the Dutch label Brilliant Classics.
