Johann Sebastian Bach:
Mass in B minor BWV232

“You’ll hardly believe it today, but when we played the Mass in B Minor for “Prague Spring” in 2005, it was the first performance of this historical instrument in Prague. When the question as to who should lead it now arose, I had the courage to step up as conductor.” Václav Luks, who is speaking here in a conversation with the early music magazine “Concerto,” is truly a pioneer of historical performance practice in the countries of the former Eastern Bloc. The Czech talent founded his Baroque ensemble Collegium 1704 way back in 1991, with which he was also a guest at the SHFM in 2002 and 2004. A year later followed the memorable premiere of Bach’s Mass in B Minor on historical instruments in Prague, the subsequent founding of the choir Collegium Vocale 1704, and the expansion of Collegium 1704 into a Baroque orchestra. In this line-up, Luks also recorded Bach’s monumental late work on a 2013 album that earned hymnic reviews.
