Since founding Bach Collegium Japan in 1990, Masaaki Suzuki has established himself as a leading authority on the works of Bach. He has remained their music director since, taking them regularly to major venues and festivals in Europe and the USA, and building up an outstanding reputation for the expressive refinement and truth of his performances, the statement said.
Suzuki’s impressive discography on the BIS label, featuring Bach’s complete works for harpsichord, and his interpretations of Bach’s major choral works and sacred cantatas with Bach Collegium Japan, of which he has already completed over forty volumes of a project to record the complete series, have brought him many critical plaudits, the statement said.
The free concert is presented by Yale Institute of Sacred Music; no tickets are required. More information is online at www.yale.edu/ism or by calling (203) 432-5062.
