Münchner Bachsolisten (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 1962 - Munich, Bavaria, Germany

In 1962, Otto Büchner, a well-known violinist and Professor at the Munich Conservatory, founded a highly qualified string chamber orchestra, which gave important concerts in Germany and other countries in close cooperation with Karl Richter. In 1982 interested and experienced Bach musicians got together again and founded the Munich Bach Soloists (= MBS) with Hans Schuster as the conductor. Most of the Bach Soloists are until the present day members of the Münchner Philharmoniker and regulary accompany the Bach Choir Heidelberg on its concerts.

Professor Kurt Guntner, former head of the Münchner Philharmoniker is now the main-conductor of the Bach-soloists. Christian Kabitz, conductor of the Heidelberg Bach Choir has also repeatedly conducted several concerts of the MBS together with the Heidelberg Bach Choir.

The chamber orchestra gives regular concerts with the Windsbacher Knabenchor and Tölzer Knabenchor and the Cäcilien-Chor Frankfurt. TV productions, guest performances and tours with these ensembles have become regular events, like at the Old Opera House in Frankfurt, The Philharmonic Concert Hall in Munich and the Philharmonic Concert Hall in Cologne.
