“One of the best in the world. It’s hard to imagine…a performance that more convincingly captured [Bach’s] genius.” -The Orange County Register.
Presented by Virginia Arts Festival. Hear Bach’s transcendent celebration of faith performed by this superb German orchestra and chorus praised for their “emotional intensity, élan and virtuoso accuracy” (Opera News). From the spectacular opening chorus that proclaims the glory of God, to the hushed and moving finale, Bach’s dramatic oratorio of the Passion story is an experience not to be missed.
