JS Bach: Cantatas Vol. 55

Masaaki Suzuki conducts the Bach Collegium Japan

JS Bach Cantatas

'Amid the devastation after the Kobe earthquake of January 1995, the Chapel of the Kobe Shoin Women's University provided the peaceful recording venue for Masaaki Suzuki's first of 55 discs of Bach Cantatas. Eighteen years later, this last CD is the pinnacle of an outstanding achievement.' George Pratt
