The OSV to perform the ‘St John Passion’ at Palau de la Música

Bach's work will be the centerpiece of a recital that will feature six choral ensembles and four soloists.

Easter may be over but it’s still a good moment to listen to a masterpiece like Bach’s St John Passion, especially at a venue like Barcelona’s Palau de la Música. On Saturday 7 April, the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès (OSV) will be performing accompanied by no more and no fewer than six choirs: Cor Ciutat de Mataró, Cor Ciutat de Tarragona, Cor de Cambra de la Diputació de Girona, Cor Lieder Camera, Orfeó Manresà and Coral de l'Escola de Música de Sant Feliu de Guíxols. The soprano Assumpta Mateu, mezzosoprano Gemma Coma-Alabert, tenor Francisco Fernández-Rueda, and bass-baritone Pau Bordas will star as soloists, while Oreig Canela and Adrià Díaz will act as narrators. And all of this will happen under the baton of Xavier Puig.

The Saint John Passion was the first passion that Bach composed and is based on the Gospel of Saint John. It embodies the religious sentiment of its composer, who considered himself to be in debt with God for the musical gift he had been given. Although the Passion will be the central composition of the repertoire, the concert will also feature Herr! by J. Vivancos, In paradissum by J. Vila, and fragments of the St Mark Passion by O. Golijov.
