Podcast of concert's recordings of the Bach Collegium Paris - Paris, France. The Bach Collegium Paris, founded in 2009, is a baroque choral and orchestral ensemble, in residence at the Deutsches Historisches Institut Paris. It focuses on the works of composers of the 17th and 18th centuries, such as J. S. Bach and his contemporaries. Its purpose is to explore the uses of instrumental and vocal practices as elucidated by original sources which describe performance practices, and to suggest new ways to understand and realize the Baroque musical aesthetic. To this end, the Bach Collegium Paris benefits from the skill and experience of its conductor and artistic director, Dr. Patrizia Metzler, whose work on J. S. Bach's compositions formed the core of her PhD and still imbues her current research. More information available on our website www.bachcollegiumparis.org.
