Expedition Bach

The project "Expedition Bach" regards the systematic search for and scholarly evaluation of historical documents in federal, communal, and church archives in the historical territories of Saxony, Thuringia and Anhalt.


The contribution made by the musical dynasty of the Bachs to European music history is without parallel. The »Bach-Repertorium« project records the compositions of every member of the widely branched-out family of musicians.
