Playing Bach in Peter Zumthor’s Bruder Klaus Field Chapel


by Domus

Bach’s Preludes were composed between 1717–1723 when he was kapellmeister so they were probably meant to be performed in a holy place. It is interesting to notice that Enders, a really young musician, chose to repropose as place of performance, 300 years after, a contemporary chapel to play Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1. The chapel in question in the one designed by Peter Zumthor in Wachendorf (Germany) in 2007

Born into a German-Korean musician family in Frankfurt am Main in 1988, Isang Enders began studying with Michael Sanderling at the age of twelve. He matured very quickly as an artist, drawing widespread attention. He has won acclaim for his performances of music ranging from Baroque to the present day.
