St John Passion in Bach ad Infinitum

thu 22 mar 2018
Theme: Early Music

Our recording of a performance of the St John Passion by Dutch Baroque led by Gerrit de Wit is broadcast in two programmes in our series Bach ad Infinitum on 22 and 23 March.

The performances of Bach’s St John Passion by this new Dutch Baroque orchestra took place on 16 and 17 March 2018 in Middelburg and Zwijndrecht.
This was the fourth year that Dutch Baroque did this and they are establishing a new tradition similar to the annual performances of the St Matthew Passion in Naarden.

The Concertzender was there and is broadcasting the recording in two parts on 22 and 23 March in Bach ad Infinitum.
