Beyond Bach: Bach Collegium Japan founder and Juilliard and Yale faculty member Masaaki Suzuki is exploring new (old) territory

James L. Paulk

Regarding the ensemble’s transition to music past the Baroque, Suzuki focuses on links between works of different eras. “Now that we’ve completed all the cantatas and most of his instrumental music,” he said, “we are so much interested in following the line of the sacred music tradition, especially in the Masses. We’ve done the Bach B Minor Mass so many times, as well as the Mozart C Minor Mass, and now the Beethoven Missa Solemnis. These three compositions are interesting and closely connected. None of the three was written to be performed in a service.
