2014 marked the triumphant conclusion of Masaaki Suzuki and Bach Collegium Japan’s epic recording of the complete Bach Church Cantatas initiated in 1995 and comprising fifty-five volumes. The recordings received wide critical acclaim and in the same year won the prestigious ECHO ‘Editorial Achievement of the Year’ award.

The release of the box set in October 2015 coincides with the ensemble’s US tour where they perform in cities such as Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington.
