The world-famous Tölzer Knabenchor will be guests of Carinthian Summer Music Festival for the first time in 2020. Founded in the 1950s, it quickly became one of the most important concert choirs, celebrating successes with conductors such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Herbert von Karajan and Christian Thielemann. Today, the choir performs more than 150 concerts and operas each year.
For their debut in Ossiach, the choir has selected a cappella motets by Bach as well as favourite works from the choruses of Mendelssohn and Bruckner. Johann Sebastian Bach was born into a large musical family. The first composer from this Thuringian dynasty of artists, Johann Bach (1604–1673), wrote the motet Unser Leben sei ein Schatten, with which the boys’ choir will open its concert. This, as well as the motet Ich lasse dich nicht, which is not mentioned by name, was kept in the famous Oldbachian archive, a collection of motets, choral songs and cantatas by older members of the Bach family between 1650 and 1700. Though it was for a long time thought to be the work of Johann Christoph Bach (1642–1703), the double-choir motet is today attributed to the great Johann Sebastian.
