S. Bach. Award-winning baroque violinist and artistic director Monica Huggett leads Portland Baroque violinists Carla Moore, Rob Diggins, Jolianne Einem, and Adam LaMotte. This collection one part of Bach’s creative output in Leipzig’s Collegium Musicum combines his idiomatic concertos for violin with reconstructions: concertos Bach originally wrote for violin, reverse-engineered from later arrangements made for other instruments.

About This Recording

J.S. Bach: Saint John Passion

Monica Huggett has produced numerous best-selling and acclaimed recordings for Avie, notably the Grammy®-nominated Bach Orchestral Suites, which made the Top 10 of Billboard’s Traditional Classical Chart. This ear-opening version, Monica claims, restored Suite No. 2 to its original instrumentation. She makes a similar case with her new recording of Bach s Saint John Passion, placing oboes where we typically hear flutes and arguing that Bach s original score was produced during his early years in Leipzig, where flutes were unavailable to him.
