Good Friday 1724: Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. John Passion is heard for the first time in Leipzig’s St. Nicholas’s Church. “If we are able to play and hear this music three hundred years later, I am struck by only one thing: this music contains an enormous power that repeatedly moves us as deeply as if we were experiencing it for the first time,” says cathedral choirmaster Valentin Kunert, Music Director of the newly-formed Domkantorei St. Pölten, which brings this masterpiece to Festspielhaus St. Pölten along with the L’Orfeo Barockorchester.
