CMNZ Presents: Masaaki Suzuki & Juilliard415
June 7 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
You could see the joy in the performers’ faces and movements as much as you could hear it in the playing.” The New York Times
Juilliard415 have established a reputation for combining youthful energy with poise, precision, and a luminous sound. Since The Juilliard School established its historical performance programme in 2009, it has demanded of its graduate students technical excellence and musical integrity, while giving them the chance to work with the most eminent musicians of the early music world. Masaaki Suzuki is undoubtedly one of these, hugely esteemed for his performances and recordings of Bach.
Bach’s instrumental music – including two magnificent Orchestral Suites, and the Concerto for Two Violins in D minor – is the focus for this tour: these performances will be vibrant and profound.
“Musicianship is, to be sure, Mr. Suzuki’s greatest strengh…a subtle ear for colour, a keen sense of harmonic direction, and an ability to make phrases breathe and rhythms live“.
