Bach: St. John Passion

Saturday, April 2, 2022, 8 pm Martinskirche Chur

The Work
The Passio Secundum Johannem is one of Bach's most important works and is considered one of the most important contributions to Western culture. She supplements the Gospel account according to John of the capture and crucifixion of Jesus Christ with chorales and freely added texts and arranges it musically in a cast for four-part choir, vocal soloists and orchestra. With two huge choirs, 14 Turbachören, eleven choral movements and participation in two arias, the choir is expected to play a leading role. In addition to the major technical hurdles, the psychological design of the choral movements places high demands on the singers.

The Association
The Bach Association Chur organizes annual concerts with music by J.S. Bach. If possible, local musicians will be taken into account. After the ensemble has performed several concerts with Bach cantatas with great success in recent years, performances of the St. John Passion are planned for 2022 in addition to the cantata concerts.
