All of Bach, all of Johann Sebastian Bach’s work and its stories in one place

2014, Online magazine, Concept and Art Direction, Project at Fabrique

All of Bach is an initiative of the Netherlands Bach Society, the leading Bach ensemble in the world. In anticipation of its 100th anniversary in 2021, the Netherlands Bach Society decided to record all of Johan Sebastian Bach’s work.

Fabrique was asked to create a platform to make all this available for the public. We created a weekly updated online magazine which lets classical music lovers appreciate the work of Bach even more. Each edition contains the original recording of the piece and the beautiful stories around it. These stories give historical context to the work, opinions of musicians, or ask the public to participate.

The result is a fresh contemporary magazine which stays away from clichés surrounding classical music, but is fitting none the less.
