JS Bach: St Matthew Passion

JS Bach: St Matthew Passion

at Kings Place, London
Passed

This event has been and gone.

The central concert of this year’s Bach Weekend is a performance of the Matthew Passion, the towering masterpiece of Bach’s Leipzig Period. It is immediately clear from the scoring and dimensions of this extraordinary work that Bach’s intention was to surpass anything yet written, either by himself or by any other composer. The Gospel narrative is shaped and illuminated with beautifully set poems and arias, written by Bach’s great librettist Picander.

The Feinstein Ensemble continue their acclaimed collaboration with The London Bach Singers, under the baton of their Director, Martin Feinstein.
