Bach is so well known today and there are so many different sets with cantatas that some customers might be surprised to know that it wasn’t always like that. The sacred cantatas, according to what I read, were neglected for a long time and their revival started practically only after the second world war, when Harnoncourt and many others broke the time barrier around Bach’s cantatas. And then came Suzuki, who broke the geographical barrier around Bach’s sacred cantatas and recorded them in Japan ! I think the whole thing about his project is truly fascinating.
Bach, throughout his life, composed cantatas for church services. Scholars believe he wrote around 300 of these works, and around 200 are still surviving. This extensive 55 disc box set includes all of Bach’s extant cantatas as well as several fragments and alternative movements. Performing these works is the Bach Collegium Japan, conducted by renowned Bach expert Masaaki Suzuki. Vocal soloists included in this project include Hana Blazikova, Yukari Nonoshita, Robin Blaze, Gerd Turk, Peter Kooij, and more.
As the magnificent Bach cantata series by the Bach Collegium Japan and director Masaaki Suzuki winds toward its end, it is exposing some fairly obscure works, and some of those are turning out to be well worth a revival. Both of the large, festive secular cantatas here qualify; one is even termed a dramma per musica, and although Bach never wrote an opera, this is surely the next best thing. Both cantatas are dedicated to Augustus III, Elector of Saxony, and his family, and both are related to his fragile role as King of Poland (which was not to the liking of the Poles).
Bach Collegium Japan (BCJ) is composed of an orchestra and a chorus specializing in Baroque music, playing on period instruments. It was founded in 1990 by Masaaki Suzuki with the purpose of introducing Japanese audiences to European Baroque music. Suzuki still remains its music director.

Few would argue that a complete cycle of Bach’s church cantatas is just about the most ambitious recording project anyone could undertake. Masaaki Suzuki, director of the Bach Collegium Japan and the latest man to pull off the monumental task, seems remarkably relaxed about it when I talk to him the morning after the very last notes have sounded. Perhaps it is because it has been achieved almost by stealth.
Masaaki Suzuki and his talented Bach Collegium Japan have chosen Bach's latest version. All has evidently been carefully prepared and deeply considered: what's refreshing about their approach is the importance afforded to the relationship between text and music, to the theological source of Bach's inspiration, and the emotional impact of the story and music on its audience. It's just as if we were at a comic opera. Though Bach never wrote an opera, he was no stranger to the genre. His cantatas reflect the recitative/aria structure and the Passion story provided the missing element, dramatic narrative. In the theatre of his imagination, Bach's response matched anything staged by his secular contemporaries. The music is dramatic from the start: dissonant wind above nervous violins and pulsating bass, before the choir prays of the glory and pain of the Passion.

Masaaki Suzuki and Bach Collegium Japan have never been content to rest on their considerable laurels. Having completed the Herculean task of recording all of Johann Sebastian Bach’s sacred cantatas in 2013, they have continued to explore the master’s diverse range of secular cantatas, arriving at this volume of celebratory works. Along the way Suzuki and his forces have revealed the richness of Bach’s musical imagination and his sense of humour in these works
