St John Passion by Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century & Cappella Amsterdam

Bach’s St John Passion is shorter than the famous St Matthew but more dramatic and compelling. Led by conductor Daniel Reuss, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and Cappella Amsterdam plunge into the emotional heights and depths of the story of the crucifixion. ‘The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century played beautifully, with that characteristic sweet string sound,’ written by Het Parool (Dutch Newspaper) in 2022. So count on a special performance in the Muziekgebouw!

Great vocal soloists such as the Norwegian soprano Berit Norbakken, the British baritone Peter Harvey and the Dutch contralto Olivia Vermeulen shine in the many beautiful arias in Bach's masterpiece.
