Johann Sebastian Bach

St John Passion, BWV 245

Duration: 2h 45 min / Intermission of 20 min

In July 2022, the Estonian conductor Risto Joost conducted the Gulbenkian Choir and Orchestra in the Mass in B Minorby J. S. Bach at the end of the celebrations of the 3rd anniversary of the inscription of the Royal Building of Mafra on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. In March 2003 he had his premiere in the Gulbenkian Grand Auditorium, conducting Mozart’s Requiem. Recognised for his versatility, he has built a fruitful relationship with the baroque and classical repertoire, returning in 2024 to conduct one of J. S. Bach’s greatest choral works, the St John Passion.
