Presentation

Of Bach’s two surviving passions, the Saint John Passion was the first composed and the Cantor reworked it several times for performances between 1724 and 1747. In Saint Thomas of Leipzig Bach’s choral and instrumental ensemble was experienced enough for the virtuosity of the arias and chorales of this powerful passion and he drove the rhetorical effects to their maximum to emphasise the dramatic and dolorous text.

Hardly a year after his arrival in Leipzig, he gave this first great masterpiece on Good Friday 1724. It is the largest by far of all his compositions and one of the public’s favourite because of its extraordinary humanity.

Sir John-Eliot Gardiner has devoted more than fifty years of his career to the works of Bach with his Monteverdi Choir, and he has also written a vast and fascinating study on the Cantor and his music. His vision of the St. John Passion, with an instrument as exceptional as this incomparable choir, is an unmissable event.
