Mit seinen Motetten wandte sich J.S. Bach einer Gattung zu, die bereits im 12. Jahrhundert große Bedeutung hatte. Die 6 Motetten sind Einzelstücke, die meist als Gelegenheitswerke und Auftragskompositionen für herausgehobene Anlässe wie Trauerfeiern entstanden. Die Musikwissenschaft streitet noch darüber, ob diese Werke a cappella oder mit Instrumentalbegleitung aufzuführen sind. Masaaki Suzuki und das Bach Collegium Japan haben sich für Letzteres entschieden, die Begleitung reicht vom Orgelpositiv über Streicher bis zu verschiedenen Kombinationen von Streichern und Bläsern. Neben den 6 Motetten BWV 225-230 enthält diese Aufnahme noch die Motette "Ich lasse dich nicht, du segnest mit denn" BWV Anh 159, die möglicherweise doch echt ist, aber nicht zweifelsfrei Bach zuzuschreiben ist, sowie die 2. Version der Kantate BWV 118. Das informative Beiheft enthält u.a. sämtliche Texte. Das Bach Collegium Japan unter Masaaki Suzuki, ein "Ensemble, von dem man träumen muss" (so der Rezensent in Diapason über die Einspielung der h-Moll-Messe), hat auch hier zu Recht viele Fans. Dringend empfohlen für alle

"The foundations of Marc Minkowski's career lie in Baroque music, and he has enjoyed a long relationship with Warner Classics, but this Johannes-Passion (St John Passion) is his first Bach for the label. The work's terse drama--here presented through just nine singers--is ideally suited to both his scrupulous musicianship and his keen sense of theatre. The French conductor describes Bach's great masterpieces as 'a journey you have to prepare for meticulously, over a long period of time. You come back from it like an explorer comes back from Everest or the moon--transformed'"--Warnerclassics.com
