Masaaki Suzuki

Catherine Bott is joined by harpsichordist, organist and conductor Masaaki Suzuki. Since 1990, Suzuki has been the musical director of Bach Collegium Japan, and his interpretations of Bach and, in particular, the cantatas have received great acclaim for their fresh, lyrical approach.

Catherine talks to him about his musical education, his approach to composers such as Bach and the impact of his Christian faith in his music-making. Music includes recordings of works by Bach, Monteverdi and Zelenka.
