The Immortal Bach Ensemble has its roots in the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. In 2001 Morten Schuldt-Jensen, the former director of the Gewandhaus choirs, formed the GewandhausKammerchor, its members having been recruited from the top professional concert and choral singers of Germany, The Netherlands, Southern Scandinavia and Switzerland. With this handpicked ensemble Schuldt-Jensen works on projects with a variety of different programmes and a very wide-ranging repertoire, from oratorios to twentieth-century a cappella music, for which the choir has been acclaimed by audiences and the press alike. In addition to frequent performances in Leipzig and figuring in high profile venues such as Schleswig-Holstein and Rheingau, the choir has produced several highly praised CDs, with an acclaimed recording of Mozart’s Requiem for Naxos (8.557728).

Since May 2006 the GewandhausKammerchor has been renamed the Immortal Bach Ensemble. The title ‘Immortal Bach’ is taken from a work of the Norwegian composer Knut Nystedt, who arranged a Bach chorale in different tempi and sequences, and with it demonstrates the artistic credo of the choir. The Immortal Bach Ensemble aims to combine old and new and with top quality performances it seeks to explore new ideas and perspectives that are captivating for both singers and audience.
