Bach Collegium Japan Masaaki Suzuki, Conductor

Bach Collegium Japan is an ensemble on a mission ‘to enable as many people as possible to share with us the joy of this wonderful music’. Hailed by BBC Music Magazine as “Kings from the East,” Bach Collegium Japan make a welcome return to the NCH to perform as part of their 2020 European Tour which also coincides with their 30th Anniversary.

Under the artistic direction of their founder Masaaki Suzuki, Bach Collegium Japan is renowned for its striking performances of Baroque music with their 55-disc recording of Bach’s church cantatas receiving a 2014 ECHO Klassik award.

You will hear three of these cantatas that date from Bach’s first three years as Cantor at Thomaskirche in Leipzig (1724-26) along with one of his ‘Lutheran’ masses that dates from around 1738/9. Sublime music to commence a Bach focus at the NCH during March.
