Internationally renowned and highly reputed Bach performer and conductor Masaaki Suzuki founded the Bach Collegium Japan in 1990 and has remained their Music Director ever since. In 2012 Suzuki was awarded with the Leipzig Bach Medal and in 2013 the Royal Academy of Music Bach Prize. In April 2001, he was decorated with the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Awarded the 45th Suntory Music Prize and Echo Classical Music Prize in 2014, the Bach Collegium Japan is known for its ideal interpretations of Baroque music centering on the religious works of J.S. Bach. In 1995 the ensemble embarked on a project aimed at recording Bach’s complete church cantatas in chronological order. This project was eventually completed in February 2013 and has been met with lavish praise in Japan and overseas as an internationally outstanding and exceptional achievement of the first order.
