"This is a record that drags you from the sofa, shakes you up, gives you a cold shower and lovingly towels you down … Beautiful music isn’t just made with the bow, but above all with the head. And here is the maverick Goebel, with a head of his own, who offers us Baroque music as timeless art: J.S. Bach, indestructible, young."
Wolfram Goertz, RP Online, 13. 10.17
Reinhard Goebel was honoured with the Bach Medal 2017 during Bachfest Leipzig on June 17th. Since 2003, this prize is awarded to musicians with exceptional merits around Bach's music. Previous winners of the Medal are well-known artists such as Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Nicolaus Harnoncourt, Ton Koopman, Helmuth Rilling and Herbert Blomstedt.
The baroque violinist, Musica Antiqua founder, and early music expert Reinhard Goebel says there's a right way and a wrong way. He reads for eight hours a day. He micromanages orchestral musicians. He doesn't care that you think you have a special affinity for Bach. Read it : https://van-us.atavist.com/reinhard-goebel

The Bremer Kreiszeitung newspaper praised Reinhard Goebel's conducting of the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen as "a real firework display". Reinhard enjoys a longstanding friendship with the orchestra, and the future promises to hold many exciting projects.
Reinhard Goebel has been professor of baroque violin at the Mozarteum in Salzburg since 2010. In June 2015 he was officially appointed successor to Nikolaus Harnoncourt as chair of period performance practice. Nikolaus Harnoncourt says of the decision, "Salzburg can count itself lucky to have authorities such as Reinhard Goebel teaching there."
