    J.S. Bach-St. John Passion (1749 version)

    Presented by at Symphony Hall

    April 21 - April 23, 2011


    J.S. Bach-St. John Passion (1749 version)

    J.S. Bach's great St. John Passion returns to the BSO repertoire after an absence of thirty years. The esteemed Japanese conductor Masaaki Suzuki, is a noted period-performance scholar and director of the Bach Collegium Japan. He brings his historically informed approach to these performances of one of Bach's greatest achievements. Bach revised the work several times after its first performance in 1724, but the 'definitive' 1749 version, restores much of the original score. Joining Mr. Suzuki, the BSO, and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus is a terrific cast of soloists including the Czech soprano Bla┼żíková in her BSO debut.
