• Bernard Labadie: Bach As The Fifth Evangelist

    Tomorrow afternoon at Carnegie Hall, Bernard Labadie conducts Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Québec in a performance of Bach's St. John Passion.

    On a previous visit to the Hall, the same line-up performed the great composer's Christmas Oratorio. Interviewed before that December 2009 concert, Labadie explained that while Bach wrote for people, he truly wrote for God. He saw it as his duty to maximize his God-given talent "to create new worlds."
