J.S. BACH: ST JOHN PASSION
Johann Sebastian Bach: Johannes-passio
The Kymi Sinfonietta’s Easter tradition is as thriving as ever, this time in a performance of the St John Passion with versatile conductor-tenor Topi Lehtipuu and a brilliant band of soloists. The St John Passion is a prime example of Bach’s timeless musical genius and skill. As we listen, we become immersed in not only the last events of Christ’s life but also a tradition beginning with Bach in which the mighty power of the great musical masterpieces brings the Easter story alive in the present day. Our long-standing collaboration with the Kotka Cantata Choir continues.
