About

Although Bach Collegium Japan makes regular appearances abroad, many of those who have been impressed and moved by the ensemble's recordings of Bach's sacred cantatas will have had few opportunities to experience them in concert. The present Blu-ray disc offers a chance of seeing, as well as hearing, the BCJ and Masaaki Suzuki on their home ground: the Shoin Chapel in Kobe where the entire series of cantatas 55 discs was recorded during the years 1995 to 2013.

Made in connection with the final recording in the cantata project, the film includes performances of three complete cantatas, as well as interviews and special features. Masaaki Suzuki, members of the ensemble, and of the recording team, tell us about the experiences that they have had and the close connection with Bach's music that has evolved during the process.
