The Melbourne Bach Choir and Orchestra conducted by Rick Prakhoff continue their tradition of Good Friday concerts with J.S. Bach’s much-loved St John Passion.
Michael Smallwood takes the role of the Evangelist with Adrian Tamburini as Jesus. The four acclaimed aria soloists will be Lorina Gore, soprano, Sally-Anne Russell, mezzo-soprano, Henry Choo, tenor and Christopher Tonkin, baritone. The orchestra will again be led by Madeleine Easton, Director of Bach Akademie Australia.
First performed in Leipzig on Good Friday, 1723 (four years before the St Matthew Passion) the St John Passion also demonstrates the composer’s remarkable gifts, but in a more compact and intensely dramatic form, based on the Gospel of St John. This extraordinary musical journey is the perfect reflection for Good Friday.
