Ensemble Caprice (MONTREAL)
Ensemble Vocal Arts-Québec
On the Saturday before Palm Sunday, EMSI is pleased to present one of Bach’s towering achievements performed by one of the world’s most sought-after early music ensembles. First performed in Leipzig in 1725, this oratorio has been among the best-loved of Bach’s masterpieces, but opportunities to hear this large-scale work are rare in Victoria.
“The music making by Ensemble Caprice was first rate.” New York Times
