René Jacobs Musical Direction
If the B minor Mass had remained a so-called Kyrie-Gloria Mass, its genesis would be told quickly. But it was to take another 16 years before Johann Sebastian Bach signed his last great vocal work with the words »Fine. DSGL«. Deo Soli Gloria - to the glory of God only Bach struggled with its completion until the very end; perhaps that is how high the demand for perfection was for the combination of his Christian and artistic credos. Solemnly, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin under the direction of René Jacobs and the RIAS Kammerchor Berlin bring to Ludwigsburg the very project with which their devoted collaboration began 30 years ago.
