About this concert

A musical masterwork, Bach’s St John Passion is a cornerstone of Western musical art. Stephen Cleobury conducts AAM and the Chhoir of Kings College alongside a celebrated cast of soloists including Nicholas Mulroy as the Evangelist.

The music is full of excitement, yet carefully paced, driven forward by the ‘turba’ (crowd) choruses. Bach shows his mastery matching instrumental colour to individual voices, notably the mournful viola da gamba accompaniment to the aria Es ist vollbracht.
