A powerful depiction of the Easter Story.
Commemorate Easter with Bach’s St Matthew Passion, featuring an all-star line-up of singers, led by Mark Padmore.
One of the iconic pieces of classical music, Bach’s St Matthew Passion retains its huge emotional impact even 300 years on from its premiere. An unsentimental depiction of the Easter story, it is immediate in its power, but still yields new riches after years of exploration.
Performing it on our period instruments will reveal the original colours and textures of the music, and it is here sung by a top-drawer cast, including Roderick Williams.
