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 (including oboes, trumpets and timpani) are rare in Victoria. To double your delight, Bach’s lesser-known Ascension Oratorio will also be performed.

“The music making by Ensemble Caprice was first rate.” New York Times

Tickets $40; subscriber, senior, member and student discounts available.

There will be no pre-concert talk for this event, but at 7:30 there will be an audience rehearsal, for those who wish to add their voices to the final chorus.
