What is truth? Concert highlight on Good Friday in Bach’s baptistery church

This Good Friday, the famous La Folia Baroque Orchestra offers a most unusual passion programme in the baptistery church of Johann Sebastian Bach in Eisenach. After the Bach Passions at the beginning of the Bach Festi­­val the story of Jesus’ suffering is told here from the perspective of Pontius Pilate, as dramatically described in the Pilate story in Mikhail Bulgakov’s famous posthumously published novel, The Master and Margarita. Read by the star actor, Thomas Thieme, it is sensationally illustrated with works by Bach, Buxtehude, Schütz and Vivaldi to create a complete artistic experience.

Thomas Thieme — narrator
Julia Böhme — alto
Robin Peter Müller — concert master
