Masaaki Suzuki has established himself as one of the world’s leading authorities on J.S. Bach. He has an outstanding reputation for expressive refinement and truth of his performances. The Times (London) has written: “it would take an iron bar not to be moved by his crispness, sobriety and spiritual vigour”. Recently, Suzuki and his ensemble won the German Record Critics’ Award, Diapason d’Or de l’Année and BBC Music Magazine Award for their recording of Bach motets.
Yale Schola Cantorum, founded in 2003 by Simon Carrington, is a 24-voice chamber choir that sings in concerts and choral services. Supported by the Yale Institute of Sacred Music with the School of Music, and open by audition to all Yale students, it specializes in music from before 1750 and the last hundred years. David Hill is the principal conductor; Masaaki Suzuki, who led the ensemble from 2009 to 2013, remains affiliated as principal guest conductor.
