Bach in Space

25 Dec 2023 | General

This Christmas, we are honoured to be part of a collaboration between Bach Archiv Leipzig and the Association of Space Explorers (ASE) that combines breathtaking imagery taken from the International Space Station with the transcendent music of JS Bach.

The project is called Bach in Space and aims to bring a broader awareness of the beauty of our planet, as seen from space, through extraordinary musical performances.

For December 2023, Solomon’s Knot is the featured artist and we provide the performances of Bach’s Magnificat in E-flat BWV 243a to enrich two beautiful space flights EARTH RISE and JOURNEY TO BETHLEHEM, released on Christmas Day 2023.

It’s already a privilege to perform the music of JS Bach; to be invited by the world’s pre-eminent centre of Bach scholarship and the professional association of flown astronauts to be part of this collaboration is truly an honour.
