In 1971, Harnoncourt started a joint project with conductor Gustav Leonhardt to record all of Johann Sebastian Bach’s cantatas. The project was eventually completed in 1990, and (barring a couple of cantatas, nos. 51 and 199) was the first and only cantata cycle to utilise an all-male choir and soloist roster.
He has been recognized with the Sonning Award (Denmark) in 1993 and Kyoto Prize (Japan) 2005.
