Customer Reviews


There is no need to praise Bach's genius for one should know of it already. But there is one part of his Brandenburg Concertos I feel is one of the most beautifully written pieces in all of music's history: the Andante in No.4. If you are compelled to buy simply a handful of songs rather than the complete album I suggest 'No.4: II. Andante' over all others, though I would urge you to buy the whole album. Simply brilliant.

Choose this one from Bach Collegium Japan over the 2009 recording!

Always a very attractive sound when I hear Bach Collegium Japan randomly on Pandora. But when you spend time listening to a full album from them, you get the sense that they are "perfect imitation" as opposed to truly playing from the soul. Much like driving a Japanese car, everything works great and does what it's supposed to, but the drive lacks character. Good for background Bach I guess. I still recommend them on the regular though, because that "flawless" Japanese engineering still succeeds on many difficult performances where others fail.

Go for it! Especially if just getting into Bach!


Genre: Classical

The Japan Bach Collegium has become perhaps the finest Japanese period-instrument ensemble from the late-twentieth and early-twenty first centuries. Consisting of a chamber orchestra of 20 or so members and a choir of about 25, the ensemble has devoted itself largely to the cantatas and other choral works of J.S. Bach and to those of various Baroque-era composers such as Handel, Schütz, and Buxtehude. The group occasionally pares down its forces for instrumental works, such as the Brandenburg Concertos....
