Montreal Bach Festival Choir and Orchestra
Julian Prégardien, evangelist and direction
World-renowned tenor Julian Prégardien not only sings the part of the Evangelist in this performance of Bach’s great St. John Passion, but also conducts the Bach Festival’s Choir and Orchestra in their debut performances. Here, handpicked professional musicians team up with young singers from Montreal’s three music schools. More than just a pedagogical exercise, these performances in fact truly reflect the spirit of the original production: that of a teacher leading his own student choir in the world’s most beautiful music.
