Description

J.S. Bach: The St. John Passion (CD)

Release Date: March 3, 2017

This magnificent recording of J.S. Bach`s groundbreaking masterpiece, the St. John Passion, is the resulto f Jeannette Sorrell`s visionary concept of a dramatic production which was presented in seven acclaimed performances in Cleveland and New York City in March, 2016.

Leading her Cleveland-based baroque orchestra, Apollo`s Fire, the Apollo`s Singers and a stellar cast of soloists including tenor Nicholas phan as the Evangelist, baritone Jesse Blumberg as Jesus and baritone Jeffrey Strauss as Pilate, Sorrell`s vision brings immediacy and clarity to Bach`s dramatic setting of the Passion story according to the gospel of St. John. `A resplendent performance...

The production belonged entirely to Ms. Sorrell, who devised the concept, which she called `a dramatic presentation`...Jesse Blumberg sang the role of Jesus handsomely and acted vividly. Nicholas Phan sang the Evangelist beautifully, with unusual animation and dramatic vehemence. Jeffrey Strauss turned Pilate into a living, breathing figure for a change. The chorus allowed Ms. Sorrell some exquisite moments...breathtaking.` - The New York Times

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
