BACH'S ST. JOHN'S PASSION AT THE GYŐR BASILICA FEATURING GRAMMY AWARD WINNERS
It is no exaggeration to say that J.S. Bach's monumental masterpiece, the St. John's Passion's April 12, 2019 presentation at the Győr Basilica could be GYPO's current 2018/19 season's pinnacle event as part of the Benedek Istvánffy's season ticket series. Exceptional musical experience is guaranteed by not only our city's orchestra but by top-notch Austrian vocalists as well, and not least by a world renown conductor of it all. The Győr Phil this time is to form musical partnership with the professional Arnold Schoenberg Choir of Vienna, established all the way back in 1972, and is especially known for their numerous great recordings.
The group had intensely worked formerly with highly acclaimed conductor/cellist Nicolas Harnoncourt for four decades under whose baton they had won a Grammy Award for their recording of Bach's lenghty work, the St. Matthew.Passion.
The evening's conductor/choirmaster is incidentally a founding member of the choir, and also a Grammy Award winner himself, Erwin Ortner.
It is a professional recognition by this world famous conglomerate to accept our orchestra's proposition to perform this magnificient piece at the Győr Basilica to our loyal and appreciative audience.
