The Mainz Bach Choir has acquired an excellent reputation far beyond Germany, not least because of its varied choral music repertoire that ranges from the 16th century to the present.

Diethard Hellmann, who was the founder and choirmaster for 30 years, was succeeded in 1986 by Ralf Otto, who has continued to broaden the ensemble’s range of repertoire, specifically focusing on rarely performed works and contemporary music. He also established an intensive exploration of historical performance practices.

The choir has worked with illustrious guest conductors such as Riccardo Chailly, Sylvain Cambreling, Peter Eötvös, Michael Gielen, Eliahu Inbal, Philippe Jordan, Georges Prêtre, Franz Welser-Möst and Peter Schreier, and is a regular guest at important festivals and concert halls at home and abroad.
