PROGRAM
JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH
Johannes Passion

Of the four passions by Bach written between 1724 and 1747 Vespers of Good Friday, only survived in their entirety the St. Matthew Passion and St. John Passion . Insula orchestra and Laurence Equilbey seize the latter and present it in an exceptional version, including two choirs on the set: accentus sings the action and the young chorus of Paris comments. The different levels of temporality and space are thus underlined, multiplying the musical power of this masterpiece.
