The Association

Without the aid of private patrons, the Leipzig Bach Archive would not be what it is today: an international centre of research and study and, with the Bach Museum, a hub of attraction for music-lovers from all over the world. The Friends of the Leipzig Bach Archive support the Archive’s goals and actively assist it in its work.

You can view the Articles of Association here (pdf/21KB).

You can view our current flyer here (pdf/2MB).

What do the Friends of the Leipzig Bach Archive do?

The purpose of the Association is to support the work of the Leipzig Bach Archive, the only institution in the world which has set itself the permanent task of collecting, conserving and indexing the musical, documentary and literary material on Johann Sebastian Bach, his family and his circle with the aim of exhaustiveness, and which serves a wide audience with its research, library, museum and events.

The Executive Committee

The Executive Committee members are Hanns-Martin Schreiber (Chairman), Markus Schubert (Vice-Chairman), Kai-Niclas Rauscher (Treasurer) and Prof. Gerald Fauth (Leipzig University of Music and Theatre, Member).
