About Masaaki Suzuki

Masaaki Suzuki was better known as a keyboard player in the first decade or so of his career, but since founding the Bach Collegium Japan in 1990, he has established himself as one of the leading conductors of Baroque choral music. Revered as a Bach specialist, Suzuki has led the Bach Collegium in a complete survey of the composer's choral works and many of his orchestral works, including the Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites. In addition, Suzuki has recorded Bach's complete works for harpsichord and, in 2015, began a cycle of the composer's organ works. His repertoire also takes in the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, and many others. In 2020, he issued a recording of Bach's Toccatas on harpsichord.
