Canberra International Music Festival 2019 - Concert 3 - St John Passion

Bach never wrote an opera but realised the perfect music drama with his superlative Passion according to John. First performed in 1724, the work propels the drama through a vivid narration of the Evangelist and inspired musical dialogue between the main characters offset by reflective chorales and memorable arias. Led by Andrew Goodwin as Evangelist and Jeremy Kleeman as Jesus with Bach Akademie Australia, this superb ensemble of singers and musicians are directed by Korneel Bernolet.
