American Bach Soloists Bach's St. John Passion

The great Passions of J.S. Bach remain unparalleled in their dramatic impact and universally experienced emotional effects. Bach took the genre to new worlds of expression, incorporating the Lutheran tradition of chorales with newer, Italianate operatic elements. The result is a powerful force of rhetoric that tells the Passion story reinforced by personalized illuminations of onlookers. Maestro Thomas, one of the Baroque music world's celebrated Evangelists, brings his unique and insightful perspectives to the podium in definitive performances that are profoundly beautiful and moving.
