Bach Collegium Japan’s “J.S. Bach: The Complete Choral Works” – A culmination after 30 years of practice with Bach

Page 3 / 3 1ページ目から読む

The music of Bach accompanying our life makes an enormous contribution when you are in critical moment. BCJ has faced such occasions and encouraged people through Bach each time. It was the Mass in B minor by BCJ that brought down the house in NY soon after the aftermath of 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, and it was also their St. John Passion that encouraged families at the ochanoma (=living room) all over the world by the streaming of their filmed performance behind closed doors of Kölner Philharmonie when they were forced to cancel the rest of scheduled concerts by the outbreak of new coronavirus. BCJ with Bach has always left something in people’s mind. They know what to be achieved by the music of Bach. The reason why BCJ is highly acclaimed in Europe and America seems to be their genuine attitude to Bach’s works in addition to their skilled performance. 

This Box set is furnished with the music as daily food for the mind. And BCJ stands out as the most appropriate performer of it with high probability.
