La Passion selon Saint Jean de Johann Sebastian Bach est un chef-d’œuvre de l’époque baroque relatant l’évangile de Jean. Composée vraisemblablement en 1724, Il existe néanmoins différentes versions de cette œuvre puisque seuls des fragments et quelques manuscrits des partitions individuelles ont été retrouvés. Pour cette composition, il puise largement dans ses écrits antérieurs qu’il adapte et transpose pour prendre les meilleurs éléments dans un parfait équilibre. Cet oratorio est de construction traditionnelle avec les récitatifs portés par l’Évangéliste, l’Aria chantés par les voix solistes et les chœurs

During the morning, there are several events organized: - "Ville en fête" allows the general public to discover all the groups participating in parades, events, shows, and concerts for a modest price - For 3 days in the week, the spectator may also just live and breathe the festival, free-of-charge, by enjoying the street events animated by several groups in the city - In the evening, there are world dance and music shows
The folklore groups perform on the outdoor stage, presenting a different sort of energy each evening.
For the World Music evening, a group embodying tradition and creation, blending acoustic and electric music, will be playing in concert.
Over these past 50 years, the festival can boast some big names among their guests: Touré Kunda, Kassav, Khaled, Manu Dibando, Tri Yann, Johnny Clegg, Faudel, Bernard Lavilliers, I Muvrini, Jimmy Cliff, Enrico Macias, etc...
For the closing evening, the public normally dresses in white, a symbol of peace and union between all people. At this point, the torches are taken away and this is followed by the flame being extinguished and a large party where all the countries are represented.
The Off Festival gives the opportunity to experience world music, a exhibition area of world crafts, a fast-food with a free party every evening. From Monday to Friday there are dance workshops, to learn about the dances of one’s country, and all this led by the music of a folklore group.

This medieval village is close to Paris but far enough to shake off the city hum and feel like the true campagne. Once per year, it’s transformed into a veritable classical musical sanctuary and a seedbed of contemporary talent by one of the most prestigious musical events in France, the Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2015. As is customary, the line-up of the festival’s ‘Opus 35’ edition features established luminaries and also embraces the discovery of young interpreters and composers. The programme resonates with such names as Hélène Grimaud, Maria-João Pires, Laurence Equilbey and Renaud Capuçon, and consists of over 20 concerts – opening with Handel’s Messiah under conductor Robert King, who’s celebrated as one of Britain’s greatest. The grand closing concert, meanwhile, will offer Beethoven’s sublime Missa Solemnis, his longest composition, under the direction of Jean-Christophe Spinosi and choirmaster Gildas Pungier.
Auvers-sur-Oise holds a special place in art history and is linked to a number of celebrated artists, most intimately to Vincent Van Gogh, whose genius will be honoured during this year’s festival.
