Insula Presents

The Saint John Passion

The Saint John Passion

1h50 without interval
Concert in German with French subtitles

programme

Johann Sebastian Bach
Johannes Passion

 
Of the four passions written by Bach between 1724 and 1747 for the Good Friday vespers, only the Saint Matthew and the Saint John have survived. Insula orchestra and Laurence Equilbey have made the latter their own and offer an exceptional version, featuring notably two choirs on stage: while accentus sings the action, the Paris youth choir comments. Highlighting the two levels of time and space, this new interpretation ratchets up still further the musical potency of a masterpiece.
