Pieter Jan Leusink: Bachs Matthäus-Passion

Around Easter, Bach’s St Matthew and St John Passions dominate Amsterdam’s concert programmes. Delicate and dramatic, the oratorios are among the greatest achievements in music. One of Amsterdam’s most popular St Matthew Passions sees Pieter Jan Leusink conducting the Bach Choir and Orchestra of the Netherlands (playing on period instruments) at the Concertgebouw – there are seven performances between 7 March and 12 April.
