St. John’s Passion (Cancelled)

Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir

Event Slider

The profound fascination with Bach’s great choral pieces led conductor Michel Corboz to fall in love with the most human of instruments – the voice – and to devote his life to conduct that repertory. For Corboz, Bach’s music summons all humanity and is a permanent source of discovery. Despite having conducted on multiple occasions great pieces like St. John Passion, each return to music and to his careful relationship with words is always renewed. It is an intimate relationship, which awakens the same initial enchantment.
