There's no mightier spiritual or artistic challenge than Bach's St John Passion - and few living performers are better-equipped to tackle it than Masaaki Suzuki and his Bach Collegium Japan.

The pairing make a keenly awaited return to London with Bach's transcendent Passion setting. The St John Passion is perhaps the most intensely human of Bach's great sacred works: perfect for an ensemble that combines supreme refinement with a limitless reverence for this sublime music.

The Barbican hosted the Collegium's first ever UK residency in 2016; since then, they've won global acclaim and their Bach, in the words of Gramophone magazine 'reaches, you might say, those parts that other performances do not'.
