Bach - St John Passion

Bach - St John Passion

Ian Bostridge, Neal Davies, Carolyn Sampson, Iestyn Davies, Nicholas Mulroy, Roderick Williams

Polyphony, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Stephen Layton

Polyphony and Stephen Layton present their celebrated performance of Bach’s most dramatic masterpiece. Accompanied by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and a starry team of soloists, Layton directs a vivid account, the excitement of the narrative drama contrasting with heartbreaking moments of reflection.

In Ian Bostridge, we have the most iconic Evangelist of the last twenty years; an artist who is an incomparable communicator, a singer of technical brilliance, and an impassioned, experienced interpreter of Bach’s music.

Gramophone Choral CD of the Month

“Polyphony show vividly just what can be achieved in Bach singing by a fairly small professional choir, especially in terms of such things as flexibility, attack and agility. The singing is flawless throughout and the attention to detail is superb, just as you’d expect.” (Music Web International)
