With great pleasure, Masaaki Suzuki announces that he will join HarrisonParrott for General Management. Since founding Bach Collegium Japan in 1990, Masaaki Suzuki has established himself as a leading authority on the works of Bach.
Considered also to be an outstanding expert on baroque and classical choral repertoire, he regularly conducts orchestras such as Bavarian Radio, Danish National Radio, Gothenburg Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, San Francisco Symphony, Sydney Symphony, and Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestras.
Present and future highlights include performances with NHK Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Singapore Symphony, and Sydney Symphony orchestras amongst others.
Masaaki has enjoyed 9 years of fruitful partnership and professional growth with Hazard Chase with James Brown and Roderick Thompson. Masaaki writes, “I am so grateful for Roderick Thomson and Hazard Chase Team for our long-term collaboration, although the terrible pandemic forced us all to change the life. In any situation, we never stop bringing wonderful music to the audience, and devoting ourselves to it. So I am immensely excited now to start working with Jasper Parrot and his team.”
Jasper Parrott comments “It is an honour and privilege to start on this new adventure with Masaaki and Masato Suzuki and the outstanding Bach Collegium Japan, a great musical treasure which I have admired so very much over many years and almost countless trips to Japan. We are glad to be able to give continuity to the devoted and successful work of Roderick Thompson and James Brown and we look forward to our future together with faith, hope and much excitement.”
Setting up their own agency in 1969, Jasper Parrott and Terry Harrison pioneered a new approach to management – one that was intensively pro-active, international, and centered around the needs and aspirations of the artists. Today, that restless and challenging spirit is as strong as ever, shared across one of the most experienced teams in the business.
