The Bach 333 boxset, the largest composer project in recording history is available from October 26th featuring many Hazard Chase artists. The set marks 333 years since the birth of J.S. Bach and the 222 CD Complete Edition is the result of two years of curation and scholarship and has been developed with the cooperation of 32 labels and a team of scholars at the Leipzig Bach Archive.
Sir John Eliot Gardiner, President, Leipzig Bach Archive says: “This superb array of recordings is to be welcomed and valued on different levels simultaneously. First, it displays the colossal range and sheer variety of Bach’s output; then the challenges of performing it and how these have evolved – exemplified by the multiplicity of recorded interpretations assembled here for the first time.”
Across the 16,926 minutes of music over 5,533 tracks, the Hazard Chase artists included in this historic release are Masaaki Suzuki, Joanne Lunn, James Gilchrist, Benjamin Grosvenor, Matthew Halls, Charles Daniels, Wolfram Christ and Alexander Liebreich.
‘Best-in-class historically-informed performances include a handpicked set of the complete Cantatas led by outstanding contributions from Sir John Eliot Gardiner and Masaaki Suzuki’.
