J. S. Bach: Johannes-Passion. Carus Choir Coach

Johann Sebastian Bach

St. John Passion

Traditional version (1739/1749)

BWV 245, 1739/1749

Description

Bach's St. John Passion is one of the most magnificent passion settings in the history of music. Four respectively diverging performances by Bach himself are documented. Bach began copying yet another differing fair copy, but it was completed by a copyist. This fair copy is the basis of today's most frequently performed version.The passion narrative is framed by the powerful choral settings "Herr, unser Herrscher" and "Ruhet wohl," but the short turba choruses also make great demands on the choir; here it is necessary to be prepared with the greatest concentration and alertness.


The Carus Choir Coach offers choir singers the unique opportunity to study and learn their own, individual choral parts within the context of the sound of the entire choir and orchestra. For every vocal range a separate CD containing each choir part is available. The CD is based on recorded interpretations by renowned artists who have performed the work from carefully prepared Carus Urtext editions. Each choir part is presented in three different versions:
  • Original recording
  • Coach: each part is accompanied by the piano, with the original recording sounding in the background- Coach in slow mode: the tempo of the coach slows down to 70% of the original version
  • through this reduction passages can be learned more effectively.
