It was long considered the "other" Passion, standing in the shadow of its two-choir sister work after Matthew. Today, the "St. John Passion" is an absolute favorite with audiences and performers alike, with its baroque splendor of color.
It was premiered in Leipzig in 1724 as Johann Sebastian Bach's first Good Friday music. The "St. John Passion" was intended for church services, but today it is mainly performed in concert halls.

Dramaturgically staged to great effect, Bach is able to inspire here with the full range of his skills.This content has been machine translated.
