St. John Passion – Benedikt Kristjánsson, Elina Albach & Philipp Lamprecht

29.9., 20:00

Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. John Passion is condensed here into intense and gripping chamber music: the Icelandic tenor Benedikt Kristjánsson tells the entire story of the passion with a high, clear and lyric timbre within an intimate framework where he takes on a range of roles. The harpsichordist Elina Albach and percussionist Philipp Lamprecht represent the orchestra with their new, richly coloured adaptation while the chorales – inspired by the practice of the original production – are sung together with the audience.  “Reduce to the max” – an advertising slogan that was originally invented for a small car – takes on new meaning with this overwhelming miniature passion.
