About

For the Bach anniversary year in 1985, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus performed St. John’s Passion in the exquisite Graz cathedral.

Harnoncourt – widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach – conducts his period-instrument orchestra along with Kurt Equiluz, Robert Holl, and soloists of the Tölzer Knabenchor.

In this performance we have attempted to realize Bach’s wishes in the most authentic manner possible.” Nikolaus Harnoncourt

In the cathedral, Harnoncourt’s musical style takes on a new dimension…a sense of power and majesty which fills the building with sound and brings it to life. Bach and Harnoncourt: a magnificent, inexhaustible subject, a musical journey round the world, a voyage of discovery…A unique occasion” (Kurier)
