Supported by the American Society for the Royal Academy of Music.

The Royal Academy of Music and The Juilliard School perform in the latest in a series of collaborations between these two prestigious musical institutions. A four-concert tour including performances at Boston Early Music Festival, Lincoln Center, New York, Bachfest Leipzig and finishing at the Academy’s Duke’s Hall, the programme features soloists and ensemble players from both sides of the Atlantic in equal measures. Both conservatoires are delighted to be led by the world-renowned director Masaaki Suzuki and eminent baroque violinist Rachel Podger, who holds the position of Micaela Comberti Chair of Baroque Violin at the Academy.

This programme stems from the Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Cantata Series — a ten-year project to perform all of Bach’s cantatas in London — which began in 2009 and has, to date, presented 150 cantatas under Iain Ledingham, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Peter Schreier, John Butt and Masaaki Suzuki.
