St. John Passion (1725 version)

Professor Dr David Chin, Founder and Artistic Director, Bachfest Malaysia | Professor Dr Manuel Bärwald, Distinguished Visiting Bach Scholar, Bachfest Malaysia

St. John Passion (1725 version)

The latest edition of Johann Sebastian Bach’s lesser-heard 1725 “St. John Passion” (ed. by Prof. Dr. Manuel Bärwald, 2021) will be performed for the first time in Malaysia by the Malaysia Bach Festival Singers and Orchestra, led by conductor Prof. Dr. David Chin. This special version includes some of the most unique and dramatic arias which Bach has ever composed. Bach uses multidimensional and multi-layered music in this timeless masterpiece to explore the meaning of love, friendship, betrayal, pain, suffering, longing, hope, faith, and many other aspects of life which are highly relatable to all humankind. We find out more from renowned Bach scholars, Prof. Dr. Manuel Bärwald (Distinguished Visiting Bach scholar, BachFest Malaysia), and Prof. Dr. David Chin (Founder and Artistic Director, Bachfest Malaysia).
