REVIEWS AND QUOTES ON BACH COLLEGIUM JAPAN

“Musicianship is, to be sure, Mr. Suzuki’s greatest strength…a subtle ear for color, a keen sense of harmonic direction, and an ability to make phrases breathe and rhythms live.” - The New York Times

“I have never heard period instruments played with such purity of tone, so reliably in tune. The small, precise, dramatically alert chorus breathed fire but also revealed a heartbreaking tenderness.” - The Los Angeles Times

“The performances are, to my ears, of unmatched excellence.” - Gramophone Magazine

“The Collegium, led by conductor and founder Masaaki Suzuki, is almost impeccable. Its violints, violists and cellists draw a pure, precise tone from their strings. The woodwinds, especially the flutes, lifted the piece to ethereal beauty with their delicate lyricism,” – Associated Press

“The choruses were trim and nimble, and the group’s compact size allowed for a transparency that kept the text clear and in the foreground. The orchestra also played with an appealing fluidity.” - The New York Times

“[T]his orchestra has a freshness and ease in live performance that is inimitable.” - The Independent UK
