The season 2020—21 will be inaugurated by one of the most famous works in the history of music, Handel’s Messiah, and this “messianic” spirit pervades the dramaturgy of the whole concert series. The unconventional programme of the Advent concert will recreate the atmosphere of Italian Baroque Christmas and we shall celebrate the arrival of the New Year with Mozart’s Coronation Mass.

Bach’s St. John Passion: Change of the soloist due to illness

Markus Brutscher webThe next concert of the Music Bridge Prague – Dresden concert cycle will take place on 30th March, 7.30 pm, in Annenkirche, Dresden.
The programme will feature Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. John Passion BWV 245, which is representing one of the pinnacles of the world’s oratorio literature. In terms of its conception as a music drama and its emotional tension, the St. John Passion is the work in which Bach most nearly approaches the world of opera of his contemporaries. Never before had the liturgical music heard in Leipzig’s St. Thomas Church been so stirringly expressive. The dramatic and convincing manner in which the story of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is retold is nonetheless one of the reasons why this music still reaches audiences even centuries later.
The part of the evangelist will be performed by the internationally celebrated opera and concert singer Markus Brutscher, who luckily recovered from his illness (the previous concerts in Brussels and Prague were performed by Eric Stoklossa). The further performers are Alena Hellerová, Dora Pavlíková, Sophie Harmsen, Tomáš Král and Lisandro Abadie, the Prague baroque orchestra Collegium 1704 and Collegium Vocale 1704 under the artistic leading of Václav Luks.
The previous concerts took place in Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels (25th March) and in Rudolfinum, Prague (26th March).
