J.S. Bach’s Saint John Passion was written during his first year in Leipzig, and was first performed on Good Friday 1724, shortly after Bach's 39th birthday. The work narrates the Passion of Christ as told in the Gospel of John. The Rochester, NY Bach Festival presents Bach’s St. John Passion, recorded at Reformation Lutheran Church with Rochester area-musicians, conducted from the harpsichord by David Chin. Soloists include Pablo Bustos as The Evangelist, Joshua Ooms, as Jesus and Joel Balzun as Pilate.
