* Concert on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the death of J.S.Bach.
* One of the greatest musical treatments of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ
Read more receives a performance that is musically precise and stylistically close to what we now know of Bach's ideals.
* The Bach Collegium Japan has been regarded for some years now as a real discovery among baroque ensembles specialising in the performance of sacred music from the Baroque.
* Masaaki Suzuki – a former Ton Koopman-student - who conducts and plays the harpsichord, is a complete and thorough musician, deeply involved in the emotional overtones of the music as well as technical questions of tempo, balance, and phrasing.
* State-of-the-art quality.
