More Info: Featuring the highly acclaimed tenor soloist Nicholas Phan as the Evangelist, Bachs sacred masterwork, St. John Passion conveys heated drama and striking emotional power. This captivating work depicts Christs crucifixion and the events that preceded it, and was originally composed for Bachs first Good Friday in Leipzig. It also marks the start of Maestro Rillings 45-year exploration of Bachs most poignant statements of faith, as the first sacred masterwork that he conducted at the Oregon Bach Festival.
