Johann Sebastian Bach just as he should be: accessible to all. To mark the 300th anniversary of the world premiere of Bach’s St John Passion, BWV 245, this large-scale piece of sacred music is performed on Leipzig’s old market square by the Sing & Sign sign language choir, soloists, deaf performers, the collegium thomanum and the "Weimar Baroque" orchestra under the baton of Diogo Mendes. The open-air concert on the Bach stage is one of the highlights of the Bachfest Leipzig (7 - 16 June 2024). The pauses at the beginning are intended to convey how deaf people normally perceive the music at concerts.
