Is Bach's St. John Passion Anti-Semitic?

When: Sun., March 5, 3-4:30 p.m. 2017

In anticipation of The Cleveland Orchestra’s March 9 – 12 performances of Bach’s St. John Passion, an extraordinarily moving and achingly beautiful telling of the Crucifixion and perhaps Bach’s most daring, forceful, and poetic work, Music Director Franz Welser-Möst convenes a panel of guest speakers to probe the claim that has often surrounded this seminal work throughout its history: “Is Bach’s St. John Passion anti-Semitic?” Presented by The Cleveland Orchestra, Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage and Case Western Reserve University.
